The Paris St. Germain forwards are two of the most gifted mega-stars on the planet, with their talents inspiring many after them, including a Nigerian international
CSKA Moscow forward Chidera Ejuke admits that he is a big fan of the PSG duo of Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe, even as he aims to mould his game after the world-renowned stars.
Neymar, a two-time La Liga champion and 2015 UEFA Champions League winner is blessed with incredible dribbling skills, tricks, and playmaking ability, which are reminiscent of compatriot and Brazilian great Ronaldinho.
Equally considered as one of the best players in the world, three-time Ligue 1 winner and world champion Mbappe is also known for his dribbling, explosive speed, and clinical finishing.
Blessed with pace and excellent dribbling skills, tricky Super Eagles winger Ejuke confesses that he watches the Brazilian maestro and the French forward to learn from them and improve his game.
“I closely watch the recognized stars, for example, Neymar and Mbappé. Because almost every action they take on the pitch benefits the team,” Ejuke said to Bobsoccer.
“This is the landmark! I try to learn from them and transfer something to my game.
“This is an ongoing process, and I am perfectly aware of what elements I need to correct and develop. “
The former Heerenveen star added: “I especially like Neymar. Basically, he is playing in the same position as me. What he sometimes does on the pitch is fantastic!
“I try to get closer to this level, I carefully study his manner. I think Neymar is an outstanding player”.
Ejuke, a self-acclaimed supporter of English Premier League giants Manchester United, was one of Eredivisie’s top dribbler before he completed a switch to Russian giants CSKA Moscow last summer.
The 23-year-old has made nineteen appearances for the Army Men, scoring two goals.
