Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba classes Andrea Pirlo and Paul Scholes as the two main idols of his career so far.
In an interview with French outlet L’Equipe, the 21-year-old also revealed that he enjoys watching videos of past and present great players in order to improve his game.
“At the start I was a forward, then a number 10. I liked the trequartista role, I felt at home there,” Pogba said when asked about the course his career has taken.
“Then I moved back and it started to be more aggressive technically. That way I had the chance to complete my game. In Italy I have grown further from a tactical point of view.
“I love to watch the videos [of the matches] and correct my errors on the pitch. I often watch Andrea Pirlo, Yaya Toure but also Gerrard and Lampard.
“I also like watching videos of the great former players like Zidane and Ronaldo. I look to take the best aspects of their games and mix them up.
“My role models? Pirlo at Juve and Scholes at Manchester United.”
