An FC Barcelona star has admitted he was inspired by one of Real Madrid's legends when he was growing up.
The Catalan club's new signing Lucas Digne has revealed that he was a big fan of Brazilian fullback Roberto Carlos in his early years.
The French international named Carlos alongside Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm as the two players he looked up to when he was younger, and explained why.
"I liked Roberto Carlos," Digne told Sport.
"He was very good attacking and defending.
"I also like Lahm, who can play in the middle of the pitch and defence."
Digne also touched on the pressures of playing for the La Liga champions, adding that the Blaugrana will do their best to win the UEFA Champions League.
"Barcelona are the biggest club in the world. We have to give everything to win the Champions League," he continued.
"It's a very difficult competition, the most complicated in the world. We have a great team and we'll give it our all.
"Barcelona are the point of reference in football. For La Masia, the club, the way of playing. Barca is football."
The 23-year-old has made three appearances for Barcelona since arriving at the club, and has assisted one goal already.
