Chelsea schemer Cole admits role-models all Man Utd players

Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole admits his current role models all play for Manchester United!

Cole is keen to follow the examples of United's veterans as he seeks to extend his own career.

He told the Daily Mail: "I look at Giggsy and just think he's the guv'nor, what a legend.

"I've just got so much respect for him. And Scholesy and Gary Neville, all them boys. It's the way to go, especially Giggsy. I got his shirt a few years back and I'd probably say it's one of the best shirts I've got. I'd like to be able to be playing like him at his age.

"A lot of players my age could retire and live the same lifestyle. But I don't do it for the money. I like the money, don't get me wrong. But hunger is in your character. How can you question someone like John Terry? He'll put his head in the way of a bus if it means winning a game of football."
