Ruben Loftus-Cheek should be a pretty special player – because he has modeled himself on World Cup legends Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry.

England star Loftus-Cheek said: “I really liked watching Thierry Henry and Zidane, especially Henry in his Arsenal days.

“Zidane was just so majestic on the ball, relaxed. He oozed class and I loved watching him.

“I remember France against Brazil in 2006. One of those game I just couldn’t believe the class of him.

“It wasn’t a case of studying really, I just liked to watch him play. I’m sure everyone did.

“Just sit back and watch, you take things in naturally.”
