Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker, currently on loan at Turkish club Trabzonspor, has revealed he compares himself to Barcelona legend Xavi and Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.
He said, “When I was told about Trabzonspor’s project regarding the season and the future, I really felt that I should be involved in this project.
“In the first days of my arrival, I saw how talented the young players were here in my first match. We are not in a perfect position. We just need time.
“You need different skills to play number 10.
“I compare myself to Xavi, Thiago Alcantara and Paul Scholes due to the position and I see them as idols.
“I watched (Trabzonspor) many times from videos. We have a great fanbase. I hope I can play in front of them before my time here expires.”
