Chelsea signing Di Santo: Crespo, Tevez my heroes

Franco di Santo is excited about kicking off his career at Chelsea.

The 18 year-old Argentine attacker has signed for Chelsea from Chile's Audax Italiano and told Ole: "I've always liked English football and it was my dream to come here.

"I like how the game is played, how quickly everything happens. It is simple and very complicated at the same time. This is what makes it attractive."

Di Santo admits he has one big ambition playing in England - to get the shirt of Manchester United star Carlos Tevez.

"He is a teacher, it will be an honour to play against him. I would love to change shirts with him.

"I would also love to meet Hernan Crespo. He is my idol."
