Lazio midfielder Lucas Biglia admits he draws inspiration from Juventus star Andrea Pirlo.

The Argentine is in his first season in Italy.

“I am a traditional Argentine number five,” he told Clarin. “I like to try and get the ball moving, always trying to use it intelligently.

“That’s what I’ve been taught since I was very small.

“My point of reference as a kid was Fernando Redondo – I always tried to replicate what he did on the pitch.

“Today however, I really admire Sergio Busquets and Andrea Pirlo – Pirlo is a playmaker who has moved into a deeper position, whereas Busquets has the sort of quality very few possess.”
