Swansea keeper Tremmel grew up idolising German legend Kahn

Swansea City goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel admits growing up idolising Bayern Munich legend Oliver Kahn.

Tremmel came through the youth system at Bayern.

"Oliver was a hero growing up and it was great to play against him in the Bundesliga," he said.

"He definitely left his mark on the goalkeeping landscape.

"There are a lot of things I learnt from him, like how he keeps his concentration for the full 90 minutes and then stops a shot in the final seconds of a game."
