Aidoo, in an exclusive interview with Foot Mercato however, declared it is his desire the footballers have a long life even though he wishes to be part of their last moments.
“I wish them a long life, of course, but if I had that chance, I dream of driving Ronaldinho to his last home.
“Then Maradona and finally Messi. Ronaldinho is a player who has always impressed me. It would be a tribute from the dancer that I am to the dancer that he was in the field,” he said.
CANDIIDONLINE gathered that Aidoo who is a Barcelona and Chelsea ardent fan also named Luis Suarez among the footballers he loathes, reflecting on the Uruguayan’s role in Ghana being knocked out of the 2010 World Cup.
