Inter Milan defender, Achraf Hakimi has come out to say that Real Madrid left-back, Marcelo is his role model.
Hakimi recently revealed that he actually sees himself in the Brazil international when he plays.
According to him, Marcelo was a very cheerful defender when they were teammates and this is a very good quality that footballers must possess during games.
He added that playing alongside Lukaku and Martinez at Inter Milan would be a blessing so he is loooking forward to next season.
His words, “As everyone knows, for my playing characteristics and also a little for my personal life, Marcelo is my point of reference,”
“He is cheerful, he enjoys playing, he has qualities that I like. I had the opportunity to train with him: he was a great teammate and I see myself a lot in him.”
On Lukaku and Martinez, “Who wouldn’t like to have strikers like Lukaku and Martinez?”
“For us who play out wide, we have to try to assist them [Lukaku and Martinez]. Being able to count on two strikers like them makes it easier to help them score.”
“Inter have just played a great season: I’ve seen several Nerazzurri matches, I’ve also played against them and they have great players with a lot of quality,”
“I think that this year we will be able to do great things, also with the contribution of those like me who came to strengthen the team.”
