Man Utd midfielder Lingard: I studied Iniesta's game

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard admits he studied Andres Iniesta's game when a younger player.

Iniesta is with Spain's World Cup squad, having just left Barcelona for Vissel Kobe.

"I used to watch Iniesta a lot, I liked him," Lingard revealed. "You just pick up little things of what they do and try to put it into your game.

"It's just the way [Iniesta] graces the pitch. He's silky, an intelligent footballer. And people have said I'm an intelligent footballer, so I have to learn off the other players that are intelligent and play in the same position as well."
