Argentina and AS Roma defender Federico Fazio praised both Gabriel Batistuta and Juan Roman Riquelme.
Fazio, who joined Roma back in 2017, has stated that former Roma man Batistuta along with Riquelme were his idols. Speaking through AS Roma’s social media, here’s what he had to say:
“My idols were Batistuta and Riquelme. I would have liked to have played with bati but unfortunately, I couldn’t. With Riquelme, yes, I played with him at the 2008 Olympic games. It was a dream.
“I’m a Boca fan. For me, Riquelme is more than an idol.”
He was part of the legendary 2008 Argentina team which won gold at the Olympic games. He, alongside Juan Roman Riquelme, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano and many more helped Argentina win gold for a second time.
