Dominic Calvert-Lewin Has Attributes To 'Be The Same' As Cristiano Ronaldo


Dominic Calvert-Lewin Has Attributes To 'Be The Same' As Cristiano Ronaldo

Dominic Calvert-Lewin's form has led to a comparison with some of the world's best strikers and he has one attribute that makes him like Cristiano Ronaldo.


The Everton forward has improved a lot over the last year or so, ever since Duncan Ferguson became interim manager at Goodison Park, and his form has been brilliant since Carlo Ancelotti took over the team.

This season the 23-year-old has scored 11 goals in the Premier League from 14 appearances, making him the joint second top scorer with Jamie Vardy and Son Heung-min.


Calvert-Lewin has earned an England call up and three appearances for his performances and is being compared to some of the world's best strikers, an opinion shared by Everton assistant boss Davide Ancelotti.

"He is a special player," manager Carlo's son told talkSPORT, "He has fantastic abilities."

"Game-by-game you can see his improvement and how he is able to make the difference in this league. It's not easy to make the difference.

"Especially from a physical point of view, it's difficult to see a player in this league that is better than the others because the level is really high.


"But Dominic is able to impress from this point of view."

With his dad managing players such as Ronaldo Nazario, Filippo Inzaghi, David Trezeguet and Didier Drogba in the past, Davide was asking if the England striker could match up to those big names, saying, "I think he has all [the attributes] to be the same.

"Of course, he is at the beginning of his way. But as I said, game-by-game, I'm seeing big improvements. Also in training he is working very hard to improve.


"The special ability he has, that all the big talents have, is that he knows his body really well. He knows his feelings really well and that's not so common.

"For example, [Cristiano] Ronaldo was a player like this. He was able to understand his body."

Whether or not Calvert-Lewin can actually reach the levels of the five time Ballon d'Or winner remains to be seen, Everton fans will be happy if he even gets close!
