Man Utd midfielder Fellaini: I've met my hero...

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini says he grew up idolising Zinedine Zidane.

Fellaini discussed his football heroes with manutd.com.

"The control he had of the ball was unbelievable. His goal against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League final in 2002 was the standout moment for me from his career - the way he watched the ball and then struck that volley - it was a magnificent goal. He was a player that I just loved watching. Very few footballers, if any, will ever be like him.

"I was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago. It was an amazing experience and I made sure I got a photo. He is a great person. We had a bit of a chat, but I was a little star struck! He must go down as one of the game's best ever players who is liked and respected by so many."
