Crystal Palace fullback Van Aanholt: I looked up to this Chelsea legend

Crystal Palace fullback Patrick van Aanholt admits growing up Barcelona mad.

Van Aanholt made the admission in a fans Q&A.

He revealed: "When I was younger I supported Barcelona. Ajax or PSV [if picking Dutch sides], both, but I always supported Barcelona, I don't know why. They produced some [Dutch] players, to be fair.

"Growing up, I didn't have an idol. But when I went to Chelsea I had Ashley Cole in front of me so I looked up to him a lot."
