Ademola Lookman, a winger for the Super Eagles and RB Leipzig, has listed Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United and Robinho of Manchester City as his football inspirations.
Before the Super Eagles’ 10-0 thrashing of So Tomé and Prncipe on Monday, Lookman, who was on loan at Leicester City last season, told the Super Eagles media team.
“My early idol was definitely Cristiano Ronaldo,” the 24-year-old said to NFF TV when asked to name his boyhood idol.
“I had a few favorites, such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Robinho, but it was mostly Cristiano and Robinho.”
“I definitely have to say getting called up to the Super Eagles, this is a highlight, big highlight,” Ademola said when asked about his most memorable moment in his career so far.
