Manchester United defender Saidy Janko admits growing up idolising his club's great rivals.

Swiss right-back Janko, 18, has been tipped to achieve big things at Old Trafford by legend Paul Scholes.

However, the youngster's heroes are United enemies.

Janko, who was signed on deadline day from FC Zurich in September, told Inside United: "I always enjoyed watching Thierry Henry and also Didier Drogba at Chelsea.

"However, I didn't really want to play up front myself.

"I knew I was not that type of player with those finishing skills."
