Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi says former Brazil international and 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year, Kaka, is his football idol, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
"My football hero is Kaka," Ndidi said in a video interview on LCFC TV.
"I love the way he played, his kind of techniques, goals scored. Actually when I was young, I watched him, though I never had the experience of who Kaka was, I only heard about Kaka scoring goals, so I just loved him."
Ndidi added that he supported any club Kaka, a UEFA Champions League winner with AC Milan in 2007, played for.
"When Kaka moved to (Real) Madrid, I also followed him. Even though he was not playing so much. I just loved the way he was calm, his moves when he played," Ndidi said.
On Tuesday, Ndidi was in action for Leicester as they progressed into the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Sevilla 2-0, to go through 3-2 on aggregate.
