‘I Want To Be More Like Totti Than Pogba’ – Roma Youngster Gerson
The 19-year-old Brazilian has been termed as the “Brazilian Pogba”, however he has stated that he would like the comparisons with the France international.
“The Pogba comparisons originate from my early days at Fluminense. I regarded it as a compliment, because he is a great player,” Gerson said.
“But I am Gerson and I have my own style of play. I was a traditional number 10 in Brazil, the fourth man in midfield who directs play and pops up in front of goal. But I am versatile and can play in other positions as well. It is all about adapting.”
“My role models in football are Totti and De Rossi. These guys are part of the club’s history and identity.”
“I watched Totti play when I was still a kid and now I play in the same team. He always looks after the younger players and the team. He is an example to follow for many, and most definitely for me.”
Gerson said that he would like to be club legend Francesco Totti and not Pogba.
The Brazilian has made 11 appearances for the Italian giants this season and has settled well in the team.
