Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey reveals he looked up to former Brazilian international Ronaldinho while growing up.

"When I was younger, I really admired Ronaldinho a lot because of his style of play. He's very interesting, and as you can see when he plays, he brings a lot of flair to his game," Bailey told Bundesliga.com

"It's an enjoyment to watch, people like to come and watch to see something special going on, on the pitch. Yeah, I really admired him when I was younger," he added.

Ronaldinho played for Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and AC Milan through his illustrious career.
