Roma striker Edin Dzeko has spoken of his admiration for Andriy Shevchenko.
Dzeko has been superb for Roma this season.
“My idol? When I was growing up it was Andriy Shevchenko,” Dzeko recalled.
“I used to watch a lot of Serie A games because it was the best league at that time, and for me he was the best striker around.
“I remember his games for Milan, of course, but I also remember him for Dynamo Kiev – I remember the hat-trick he scored against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
“That was probably the first time I saw him; I can't remember exactly because it was a long time ago. But for me he was the No. 1 player.”
