De Ligt names his biggest idol

Matthijs de Ligt names his football idol after winning the Kopa trophy – and it’s a surprising name.

“My idol? If I have to choose one name, then it will be Sergio Ramos.”

De Ligt moved to Juventus from Ajax for €75m last summer, joining Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci in the Bianconeri defence.

But he does have a lot in common with Ramos – the aggressive style, the attacking ability and even sometimes reckless challenges.
