The Australian, currently providing cover for number one Petr Cech at Stamford Bridge, says the likes of Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and Dennis Bergkamp were the best he has gone up against.
Meanwhile, current Gunners striker Nicklas Bendtner has been described as having an X factor by his international teammate, Lars Jacobsen.

Manchester City are using an unusual method to help train the young stars in their youth academy – a mobile app.

Barcelona and Ajax legend Johan Cruyff believes Neymar is easier to defend against than teammate Lionel Messi.
