Klinsmann was my favourite footballer as a kid.

 

Yeah he was great. A really good bloke as well by all accounts.

 

who was you first footballing hero/idol as a little 'un. Who did you used to pretend to be in the playground?

Growing up with parents who don't really like football, Euro 96 was my introduction and I caught the bug. Absolutely loved it. Cheering on England, with Shearer as the hero. Then a few weeks later he signs for Newcastle! I thought football would always be this easy and have been comprehensively proved wrong ever since :lol:

 

So yeah, definitely Shearer for me.
