While Ronaldo missed out on the Ballon d'Or this year, Felix was named the 2019 Golden Boy.
He told A Bola: "Cristiano is an idol of my childhood, an example in all respects for me.
"When I was still a child, he was already the best footballer in the world. CR7 is unique and unrepeatable, he is writing the history of football.
"I liked hearing him speak well of me, but I still see a lot of distance between us."
