Former Manchester United ace Nani has stated that humility of Daryl Dike will make him go far in his career.
Nani said his teammate at the MLS side Orlando City FC is special and did not allow his performances and rise in career get to him.
“Daryl is a special boy, for me, he is very humble. Obviously when the kids start to play the game and start doing well on the field, start scoring goals, you start to feel like a star and you hear the fans calling for your name, it’s normal to … as we say in my country, the nose goes a little bit up,” Nani said.
He also revealed that Dike listen to fellow players and coaches.
“With the good conversations, he listens to all the players and the coaches, and the lasting result is what you see,” Nani added.
“He’s been humble, he’s been paying attention, he wants to help the team, he wants to learn, the most important thing is he wants to learn. Everything he’s taken in, he listens. … I think he’s much more mature, he understands much better the game, his motivation is so high, his confidence, he’s caring. So it’s good for us.”
“I think he can take his game very far,” Nani further said.
“I always tell him, ‘We need to know where we came from.’ Once he always knows where he came from, he will know where he goes because he still listens, he still understands there are a lot of things he needs to improve.
“So when you have that understanding it’s easy to go wherever you want. But his potential is incredible. He’s so strong, his power to finish, he’s improved a lot the way he finishes.
“I think if he continues like that very soon, it’s very difficult to handle a player like that.”
