Crotone striker, Simy Nwankwo revealed that he was snubbed by Cristiano Ronaldo after he asked for his shirt after a Serie A match against Juventus in February.

According to the Simy who was introduced in the 72nd-minute substitute for Adam Ounas revealed that he approached Ronaldo after the game for his shirt. 

Just so you know, Ronaldo scored a brace as Juventus cruised to a 3-0 home win against Crotone on February 22. 

Super Eagles striker said that Ronaldo instead gave it to his compatriot Pedro Pereira. 

"I tried to exchange the shirt with Cristiano Ronaldo, but he gave it to Pedro Pereira who is Portuguese like him,” Simy told Tribuna.

Although, Simy have been in some great scoring form this season, scoring 19 goals in 34 league matches so far. 

The 28-year-old added that he would also like to swap shirt with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

"I would [also] like those of Messi and Lewandowski.”

Crotone were relegated from Serie A on Saturday after a 2-0 loss to champions Inter Milan but Simy has been outstanding in front of goal this season.
