Real Sociedad youngster Ruben Pardo hopes to avoid Illarramendi comparison

Real Sociedad midfielder Ruben Pardo hopes fans do not expect him to replace Asier Illarramendi this summer.

Illarramendi's sale to Real Madrid has opened the door for Pardo.

"While everyone says it, I do not consider myself a replacement for Illarramendi. I'm working to try to play every possible minute. I'm young and I want to do my best and try to help as much as I can Real," said Pardo.
