Swansea ace Gylfi Sigurdsson: I model my game on this Chelsea legend...

Swansea City ace Gylfi Sigurdsson admits basing his game on Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

The Icelander idolised Lampard when growing up.

He told the Telegraph: “Frank Lampard was always the player I tried to model myself on. The amount of goals he scored from midfield was incredible.

“On and off the pitch, he was what I wanted to be. I was lucky enough to work with his father for a short period at Reading and that gave me an insight into why he is the player he is, why he has scored so many goals."
