I’ve got friends that are black, Asian, Pakistani, all sorts of friends, and I think it is important to welcome everyone. They all bring something different.
I have played with a number of great foreign players: the one that sticks out for me is Arthur Newman, when I first broke into the team he looked after me, and he is still a good friend. Ronald De Boer has fantastic ability, I played two or three seasons with him and learned a lot from him. And also Craig Moore, an Australian guy who I thought was a great defender and centre half.
