Roma’s Fabio Borini has admitted a love for Alessandro Del Piero and Roberto Baggio ahead of Sunday’s game at Juventus.
“Del Piero is my idol and I’m not saying that because we will be facing Juventus this weekend,” he told La Stampa.
“I never remember Del Piero saying a word out of place, he’s the best you can get. Then there was also Baggio, Roberto Baggio.”
Del Piero succeeded Baggio in the Juventus No 10 shirt in Turin. The 37-year-old, signed in 1993 from Padova, will leave the Turin giants in the summer.
While leaders Juventus are going for the title, Roma are four points away from the last Champions League spot.
“We want third, but our season won’t be decided in Turin,” continued the new Italian international.
Borini, co-owned with Parma, has been a revelation in Serie A this term as the 21-year-old has scored nine goals in 19 League games.
