Former Manchester United and Portugal star Nani, who won 12 trophies in England, has named an ex-Orlando Pirates player among his footballing idols.
Click through the gallery above to see the players Nani grew up admiring.
The winger has represented the Portuguese national team on 112 occasions, but was just a youngster when he entered the senior set-up alongside some footballers he could not help admiring.
In a recent interview, Nani named a few former Portugal stars as players he idolised, including ex-Pirates midfielder Luis Boa Morte, who later helped him with his development.
"My first international game was when I was in Sporting, I think in my second season as a professional," he told the Red Devils' UTD Podcast.
"That was great because I had the opportunity to meet so many fantastic players, some players who I admired as a child. When I was young, I followed Deco, Maniche, Costinha, Luis Boa Morte. They gave me a helping hand at the beginning, and then there was Cristiano.
"He was young, but had so much quality and we were looking to him. We'd get close so fast because people were saying we had the same style.
"We were together in the first days after I arrived in the national team and that was it, even more so when I moved to Manchester."
Nani, who now plies his trade for Orlando City in the US, has scored 24 times for his country, and was part of their 2016 UEFA European Championship-winning side.
