“He took some stick during his career, was attempted to be ridiculed by some, but knuckled down. The amount of goals he scored was absolutely sensational. I was very fortunate to have played with him very early on in his career with England under-21s and the seniors.
“I played against him many, many times. Great attitude on the pitch and off the pitch he was always very approachable.
“An exceptional player, a great guy and I think he’ll be missed. Undoubtedly he would have untold offers, but he clearly wants to finish at the top and good luck to him in whatever he does.”
