Super Eagles and RB Leipzig winger, Ademola Lookman, has named Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo and former Manchester City star, Robinho, as his idols in football.

Lookman, who was on loan at Leicester City last season, told the Super Eagles media team before their 10-0 demolition of São Tomé and Príncipe on Monday.

When asked to name his idol as a kid, the 24-year-old told NFF TV: “My childhood idol was probably Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I actually had a few like Cristiano Ronaldo, I liked Robinho but mainly the two Cristiano and Robinho."

On the biggest moment in his career so far, Ademola replied: “I probably have to say getting called up to the Super Eagles, this is a highlight, big highlight."
