Torino's Ola Aina picks Dani Alves as his all-time favourite defender

​Nigeria international Ola Aina has revealed that former Barcelona midfielder Dani Alves is one of his favourite players, lauding his achievements throughout his career, Goal reported.

Alves enjoyed an eight-year spell with Barcelona, scoring 14 goals from 247 league appearances before making his move to Serie A giants Juventus where he made 19 appearances and netted two goals.

The 36-year-old also won three Champions League titles, six La Liga trophies, three Copa del Rey and three Fifa Club World Cups to name a few during his tenure at Camp Nou and he went on to write his name as one of the most exceptional midfielders. 

In an interview with Torino's official website, Aina said that Alves is his best player as they share the same playing position and also talked about his future aspirations. 

"In my position Dani Alves. He won everything with Barcelona," Aina said.

"[My biggest joy in life] is signing my first professional contract. I want to become an artist or real estate investor [in future].

Aina has made 25 Serie A appearances across all competitions for Torino this season.
