â€śI am a traditional Argentine number five,â€ť he told Clarin. â€śI like to try and get the ball moving, always trying to use it intelligently.
â€śThatâ€™s what Iâ€™ve been taught since I was very small.
â€śMy point of reference as a kid was Fernando Redondo â€“ I always tried to replicate what he did on the pitch.
