Colchester boss Geraint Williams says former West Ham and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has been fantastic in preseason training.
Sheri, 41, joined the Championship outfit on a free from West Ham and is set to kick-off his 24th pro season at Sheffield United on Saturday.
But Williams revealed the former England, Manchester United and Spurs star is already at home at Layer Road.
He said: "Teddy still has that look of a teenager and when you talk to him his enthusiasm is still there.
"He's very honest, very unassuming. The only difference is he turns up in a Bentley for training!"
