CHAMBERS WANTS TO BE LIKE RIO
IF Leo Chambers is half the player his role model was, then Colchester United have a bright prospect among their ranks.
The 20-year-old defender joined the U’s on loan from West Ham late last month and helped them end a 19-game winless run with victory at Bradford on Tuesday night.
Chambers revealed afterwards he aspires to follow in the footsteps of a former Hammers legend.
“The only centre-half I've modelled my game on is Rio Ferdinand,” he said.
“He came from 20 minutes down the road from me in south London.
“He’s come through West Ham’s academy and we have sort of similar playing styles.
“If I could be half the player he was, I’ll be all right.”
