Premier League players full of adulation for title-winning Miami Heat

A number of Premier League players have heaped praise on the Miami Heat on Twitter following their NBA championship win on Thursday.

"The Heat won I can see then + @KingJames took the #MVP !! A monster in the NBA, eating away all types of records!" posted Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand.

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany wrote: "Seeing Heat celebrations just makes me wanna get back to work already and kick off that new season. Patience though... Patience. #Champions," whilst Liverpool's Lucas Leiva posted: "Congratulations to @KingJames for the title last night !!! #LETSGOHEAT."
