Paris Saint Germain attacking midfielder, Javier Pastore, has revealed who he feels, at his prime, was better than legendary French midfield maestro and 3-time World Player of the Year, Zinedine Zidane.

The 26 year old Argentine made this disclosure in a recent interview with French reporters, Le Journal du Dimanche, speaking of the influences of the 1998 World Cup winner and fellow Argentine, Juan Roman Riquelme on his playing style and career.

Although, Pastore idolized the two great players, he spoke of his preference for the ex-Villarreal man over Zizou.


Pastore said, “I have always worshipped playmakers. The elegance of Zidane influenced me a lot, but, when I was small, I only had eyes for Riquelme.”

“I watched – with my eyes glued to the television screen –  the relationship he created with his striker. Through him, I discovered the gesture I love the most: the pass. He was an idol in South America.

“He revived the role of the central playmaker. I am very far from his influence on the game. I long to get as close as possible,” he added.

Since joining PSG from Italian club, Palermo, in 2011, Pastore has scored 23 goals in 124 appearances for the French champions.
