Juventus' Luca Toni: I wanted to be like Marco van Basten

Juventus attacker Luca Toni has stated that former Netherlands international and AC Milan star Marco van Basten was his role model after he became a striker.

The Italy international, who started his playing career as an attacking midfielder, added that Juve legend Michel Platini had been his boyhood idol until then, but a change in position meant that Van Basten became his inspiration.

The story is too old to be commented.
