I was Chelsea fan as a boy – Sancho

Jadon Sancho has revealed he supported Chelsea as a boy.

Borussia Dortmund has been heavily linked with Manchester United for the past two seasons.

Chelsea have also shown an interest in the England winger, and Sancho admits he has a soft spot for the west London club.

Asked to name his main footballing role model during his youth, Sancho told talkSPORT: “I’d probably say Frank Lampard. I was a Chelsea fan growing up, I can’t lie!

“Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard were my favourite players at the time.

“I just love Frank Lampard and how he played his game; he was so direct and so composed on the ball.

“I like things like that.”

Sancho was also asked about speculation linking with a big money move to Old Trafford.

“I’m cool about it,” he said. “There’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well.

“It’s just how you handle that on the pitch. You’ve got to keep doing what you’re doing; if you keep on doing that then I’m sure that won’t be a problem.

“The main thing is my football and that’s what I’m focusing on at the moment.”
