Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has revealed he looked up to Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets to shape his game.

“When I was young, I used to watch Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi — everyone did,” he explained.

“But when I started to analyse my game and think about who I would like to progress to be like, it was more like Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Cesc Fabregas — it was those players.

“It was something about how they passed the ball, receiving the ball, everything was sharp. Sergio Busquets, too. When you watch Barcelona and you watch Busquets specifically, everything happens around him.

“Those are the kind of players I looked up to, getting on the ball and making things happen.”
