Jese flattered by Cristiano Ronaldo comparisons

The Spain Under-20 prospect has voiced his admiration for the Portugal star and is hopeful of breaking into the first team at the Santiago Bernabeu next season
Real Madrid youngster Jese Rodriguez admits he is enjoying comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo, while revealing his determination to become a household name for los Blancos.

The 20-year-old impressed for the club's Castilla side in 2012-13 as he netted 22 goals in the Segunda Division and he has set his sights on a spot in the first team next season.

"I have liked a lot of players; the Brazilian Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, but my favorite is Cristiano Ronaldo. I like being compared to him," the Spain Under-20 star told Marca. "I love his drive. He never gets tired of scoring goals. He always wants more.

"The club president is happy with me. I hope to reach an agreement and stay at the club. I really want to play in the first-team."

Jese made his official debut against Ponferradina in 2011-12, but has since been unable to secure regular first team action.
