New Real Madrid signing Takefusa Kubo was asked how he felt about being compared to Barcelona superstar Leo Messi and surprised reporters with his modest reply. The 18-year-old Japanese player, who will spend next season with Real Madrid Castilla, responded in perfect Spanish and humility: “Well, I don’t really like it when people compare me to such a great player as Messi, but I’ll just keep working hard to become a better player”.
