Neymar: 'Robinho my idol'

Brazil and Barcelona hero Neymar admits “it was my dream to be like Robinho,” as the Milan striker was his “idol.”

Neymar made the comments in an interview with Sky Sport Italia and confessed to having a soft spot for the Rossoneri forward.

“My idol as a child was Robinho. He played for Santos and in some of Europe’s biggest clubs. It was my dream to become like Robinho.”

Robinho is now 30 years old and scored five goals in 32 competitive games for Milan this season.
