Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic was inspired to play football by former France international Zinedine Zidane.

The Bosnian is doing his part to aid Roma’s challenge for the Serie A title this season, having scored seven goals in 13 top-flight appearances.

Zidane claimed two Scudetti during his time at Juventus and the 25-year-old says the Frenchman played a massive role in shaping the type of player he has become.

“Zidane made me want to be a footballer when I was younger. I liked the style of his football, how he played the game,” Pjanic told Roma’s official website.

“He was, for me, the best player I ever saw. He had a lot of elegance and grace – I just liked watching him play.

“Did I try and emulate him? Of course, he played the same position as me, so I would watch his plays all the time and try to do some of the skills that he would do on the field.”
