Empoli full-back Fabiano Parisi has named Theo Hernandez as a role model of his, admitting that he studies the way that he plays along with others.
Parisi has been drawing attention with his performances for Empoli since they got promoted back to Serie A, with the 22-year-old having netted twice in Serie A this season as he continues to gain a reputation for being an exciting young attacking full-back.
Parisi was interviewed by the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport and he was asked if he has any players that he would consider role models or those in his position that he tries to emulate, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
“Theo Hernandez is a role model, even if I don’t have one in particular. I study everyone, even those from the past with videos, like Roberto Carlos. I like Jordi Alba,” he said.
Back in October, Parisi suggested that he would be a good fit in a system like the one Milan play, while our colleagues at SempreMilan.it reported earlier in the year that current deputy left-back Fode Ballo-Toure has not convinced and the Empoli man is on a list of potential replacements.
