SET STAR RON­ALDO AS YOUR BENCH­MARK, CARL

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

CRIS­TIANO Ron­aldo pla ying for Old­ham Ath­letic might sound like pure fan­tasy but in manag er Lee John­son’s mind, mid­fielder Car­lWinch­ester is the next best thing.

Drawing in­spi­ra­tion from the three­time Bal­lon d’Or win­ner , the 21-year-old has been cen­tral to the Lat­ics’ pro­mo­tion push, and J ohnson be­lieves this is just the start.

“He can be an ything he wants,” he said. “If you are look­ing at some­one to get you to a higher level then he has all the in­gre­di­ents.

“You look at Cris­tiano Ron­aldo as the bench­mark, as he is prob­a­bly the hun­gri­est player in the world.

“If they can do even half of that, then peo­ple like Carl can ha ve very good ca­reers.”
