Fulham defender Stephen Arthurworrey is being likened to Manchester United star Chris Smalling.

But the teen says he models his game on another United defender.

He told fulhamfc.com: "In world football, I like Nemanja Vidic a lot - I try to play in a similar style to him. He does the dirty stuff well and it’s very rare that he doesn’t come out of a tackle with the ball. For Manchester United, people say Rio Ferdinand is the one who can pass and Vidic is the battler, but I like to think I’m developing my game so that I can be a master of both trades."
