​Wolves whizkid Pedro Neto inspired by Juventus star Ronaldo

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Pedro Neto admits that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of his inspirations.

The 20-year-old youngster has been impressive since arriving from Lazio in the summer.

And he admits that he is hoping that he can make a similar impact as Ronaldo made in the Premier League with Manchester United.

"He's on a different level. I try to copy him. If we want to be the best, we must copy those who already are," said Neto to reporters.

"I always did extra physical work, but now I do it more completely after setting up a home gym.

"English football is the most captivating in the world. It was my dream as a child. At that time, I watched Ronaldo's games on television, which was my reference, for Manchester United and I thought I would also like to play in that fabulous league.

"I am proud to be here. I have always worked for this dream."
