Yaser, who was born in Baghdad 16 years ago, says his hero is legendary French star Zinedine Zidane and told Hotspur magazine: "He played in the same position as me and I always wanted to be like him because he made the game look so easy."

But when asked who he plays like he added: "In the modern game it would be Cesc Fabregas he links the play and helps the team maintain possession. I try to do the same."
