Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba names Ronaldo and Ronaldinho amongst his influences
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has named Ronaldo and Ronaldinho amongst his idols.
The 21 year-old has had an outstanding season in Turin and is considered one of the world’s best young players, but still feels he has room to improve and hopes to learn from those who have influenced him.
“I need to improve with my headers. But I have to improve also in so many areas,” he told La Stampa, as reported by Football Italia.
“I look at Cristiano Ronaldo and I see a player who can do everything. Here, I would like to become a complete midfielder.
“My idols were Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, [Zinedine] Zidane. I like to play in midfield because that is the engine of the game, you always have the ball at your feet.”
Pogba joined Juventus from Manchester United on a free transfer in July 2013. This season he’s made 34 appearances, scoring seven goals.
