“When I played against him, I’m quite a small guy – I’m 5′ 10” and I’m really slight. People may think maybe I look bigger on the pitch…
“The best thing when I used to play against Zidane – at club level and I played against him for Ireland – the advice I would get from my friends in Ireland would be, ‘just kick him!’ That would be the technical advice.
“I used to say, ‘he’s 6′ 2″. He can deal with that!’ I think he’d been sent off eight or nine times. What he was and what I loved about Zidane was that he was nasty.”
