Real Malloca whiz Luka Romero admits Messi comparison frustration

Real Malloca whiz Luka Romero admits he's eager to avoid comparisons with Barcelona star Leo Messi.

Making his Mallorca debut at the age of 15 years and 219 days, he drew immediate comparison to some of the brightest talents in the game.

"It annoys me that they compare me to [Lionel] Messi because there's only one Messi and I want to make a name for myself in football as Luka Romero," he told 90 minutos on Fox Sports.

The teenager also delved into his past, explaining his background.

"I was born in Mexico but my family is from Argentinian, I have three nationalities (alongside Spanish)," Romero explained.

"If they still want me in Argentina, I will keep playing in Argentina, if possible.

"It's been four or five years since I travelled for Christmas, I know about Quilmes, but not a lot.

"I would have liked to have trained with an Argentinian team, at Quilmes because my dad played there."
