Chelsea starlet McEachran: Zidane my idol growing up

Chelsea starlet Josh McEachran admits he grew up idolising Zinedine Zidane.

McEachran struck his first goal for Chelsea in last night's Asia Trophy final victory over Aston Villa.

"Zinedine Zidane," McEachran told reporters when asked who he idolised as a kid, "but now he is retired I look up to Frank Lampard and [Andres] Iniesta.

"With Zidane it was everything about him, his goals, his touches. He was the complete all-round midfielder."
