Palermo's Javier Pastore claims his long-time idol is Roma's Francesco Totti.

Palermo ace Javier Pastore has revealed his childhood dream was to become like Roma captain Francesco Totti.

The Argentinian was on the mark again for his side as he contributed to their 4-1 win over Bologna on Sunday with a goal.

"When I was young I used to watch Italian football matches and my wish was to one day become like Totti and [Alessandro] Del Piero."

Meanwhile, Roma's Daniele De Rossi is in doubt for their Champions League match agaist Basel.

He had physiotherapy on Monday morning following last week's ankle injury whilst on international duty with Italy.

His presence against the Swiss side is in serious doubt. Totti was on the pitch and took part in training.
