Man Utd target Sancho admits idolising two Chelsea legends - and Ronaldinho

Borussia Dortmund whiz Jadon Sancho admits he grew up idolising two Chelsea legends.

While a target for Manchester United, the England international admits he modeled much of his game on two Blues icons.

"Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube," he told The Independent.

"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."

He continued: "It was all about learning skills and expressing myself.

"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."
