Chelsea told to sign ‘childhood superstar’ and call off Tottenham talks immediately | Football | Sport

Ferdinand said: “Yeah I can see why [it’s being mooted] but again I think there’s so many players down the years that ability-wise they might be middle of the road in the squad but what they offer you in terms of character and influence around the dressing room, and standards that they set, is invaluable.
