Having won the Ballon d'Or as the world's best footballer five times, Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has inspired a lot of young players with his dedication, physicality, technical ability and eye for goal.

One of them is Borussia Dortmund's Jacob Bruun Larsen who is starting to make a name for himself in Germany. Asked if Ronaldo is a player that Bruun Larsen looks up to, the 20-year-old Dane responded:

"Over the last many years, yes. I don't think he's the best footballer. But he has an eye for goal. He's always there when things get dangerous. And that's what I've been working on for the last two years," Bruun Larsen told Danish TV show 'Sat Af'.

Apparently, Bruun Larsen also has a soft spot for Ronaldo's former club Real Madrid.

"For me personally, it would be bigger to play for Real Madrid than to win a big title. If you can play for Real Madrid every day, and you can be a regular there, that's just the greatest thing. Because then you're one of the very best - one of the 11 best players in the world," he told 'Sat Af'.

However, Bruun Larsen says he might not ever leave Borussia Dortmund.

"I'd be happy to stay at Dortmund for the rest of my career if I can," the 20-year-old said.

The young winger has made seven appearances for Borussia Dortmund this season with three goals and two assists to his name.
