In an interview with 100% PSG, Javier Pastore has revealed that his idol is not an Argentine compartriot, but a Brazilian in the form of Real Madrid superstar Kaka.
The Paris Saint-Germain playmaker admitted to being inspired by the former FIFA World Player of the Year and does not let his nationality (due to the South American rivalry between Argentina & Brazil) diminish his admiration for him.
“Kaka has always been an example and a role model. I am much inspired by his game and technique.” Pastore told the magazine.
“As I am Argentinean, it is surprising that my idol is Brazilian. But regardless of the sports rivalry between the two countries, only talent matters to me and Kaka is an artist.”
