Juventus superstar Paul Pogba has named the two players who made him fall in love with the beautiful game.
The Frenchman, who turned 23 on Tuesday, has revealed that former Brazil striker Ronaldo and current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane were his idols when he was growing up.
"Ronaldo is my footballing role model and the player that made me fall in love with football," he told FIFA's official website.
"I was enthralled by him as I used to play up front when I was younger.
"His technique, pace and eye for goal, as well as the variety of his play, was something I liked and admired.
"And, of course, Zidane too. He's a French icon and someone who made a real impression on us. We won't forget him.
"Everyone respects and admires him, and we all want to emulate what he's achieved in his career."
The former Manchester United midfielder has made 39 appearances for the Old Lady this season, scoring six goals and providing nine assists for his teammates.
