Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara inspired by Yaya Toure

Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara admits he bases his game on Manchester City hero Yaya Toure.

Diawara has played a key role in Napoli's surge to the top of the table.

He said: “My football idol is Yaya Toure, as I like his quality and vision. I tend to get excited by big games, like starting against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, but I am also very relaxed, because I enjoy that type of match.

“I really like the city of Naples, the fans, the people and the pizza! I am superstitious, so before the match I always pray and enter with the left foot second."
