First football kit was Arsenal jersey, says Chelsea's Loftus-Cheek

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed his first football kit was an Arsenal one as he loved Thiery Henry. 

Arsenal legend Henry remains the club's all-time goalscorer, having netted 228 goals in his 376 appearances.

"It was actually an Arsenal kit when I was about six because I really liked Thierry Henry at the time," he said when asked about his first football kit. 

"It was obviously very shortly after that I started with Chelsea at the academy."

Loftus-Cheek joined Chelsea’s academy in 2004 at the age of eight and went on to make his first-team debut for the Blues a decade later.
