Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has named Chelsea Legend Ashley Cole as his best player.
The former Arsenal and Chelsea defender Ashley Cole is rated among the greatest ever left-backs to have graced the Premier League.
Cole was a top player during his playing days with Arsenal, and achieved more success as he spent eight years at Stamford Bridge.
And Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has now named Cole as his best ever icon as a child.
“Obviously I would have to go towards a left-back and one I watched a lot,” Shaw told MUTV when asked to name his footballing idol as a child.
“For me, he was probably one of the best left-backs ever in the game: Ashley Cole. Like I said, I watched him a lot and I wanted to become a player like him.
“I was lucky enough to go to an England camp with him and it was amazing to be around someone I idolised so much and I watched a lot of him and he was the player I wanted to be like when I grew up.”
