Kharja: 'I was Leo's ball boy'

Inter's new signing Houssine Kharja has recalled how he was a ball boy at Paris Saint-Germain when Leonardo was at the club.

The 28-year-old playmaker joined Inter from Genoa during the January transfer window.

"When he played at PSG, I was in the academy and I was a ball boy," Kharja said.

"Leo was an idol of mine. He scored goals and made other players score too, taking free-kicks and corners perfectly.

"I still have a couple of pairs of shorts of his that were thrown away and then given to me by the kit man."
