Southampton starlet reveals himself as Blues fan.
Southampton starlet Luke Shaw has revealed himself to be a Chelsea fan according to The Daily Mail.
Speaking on twitter, the young Saints defender responded to a question about whether he was a Chelsea fan with ‘#Championsofeurope yes I am’.
He went on to say that Stamford Bridge was the ground he was looking forward to playing at the most, before going on to declare that Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Didier Drogba were better than Steven Gerrard, Leighton Baines and Samuel Eto’o.
The news is sure to delight Chelsea fans who will be relishing the prospect of signing one of the country’s best young stars. Arsenal fans however are likely to be less enamoured with the news. The Gunners have been strongly linked with Shaw over recent weeks and will be disappointed to see the player declaring his love for Chelsea so publicly.
Shaw will have the opportunity to show Chelsea what he is capable of when Southampton make the trip to Stamford Bridge tonight. But Shaw is reportedly in no rush to make a move.
‘To put an end to all speculation. I will be committing my future to Southampton. I’m not going anywhere. I think they are happy with me here and this club is great for young players.’
