Man Utd, Chelsea target Sancho full of praise for Lampard, Drogba

Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho admits growing up admiring Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Sancho is a target for Chelsea, along with Manchester United, this summer.

And he's spoken of how he'd develop his skills playing in the cages of south London.

"It was all about learning skills and expressing myself," he told The Independent. "I like adapting that to a real game. It makes defending harder because opponents don't think you have those sort of skills.

"It gives you an advantage against some players and luckily enough it's been working out for me."

He added: "Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube. But I liked Frank Lampard quite a lot and Didier Drogba when they were playing for Chelsea.

"They were the three players I looked up to."
