Sassuolo midfielder Luca Marrone admits he models his game on AS Roma star Daniele de Rossi.

Marrone played with Andrea Pirlo at Juventus last season.

"Pirlo is not my only role model, but Andrea has unique skills, it would be hard to imitate him," he said.

"As a result, I model myself on Roma's Daniele De Rossi who is more similar to me, even if I don't score as regularly as he does."
