Previously resigned to playing a back-up role, these individuals have become idolised and are now driving their respective club’s to new heights.

There is nothing better than when a product of your academy comes through the ranks to become the star of the show. Kane is the main man at Spurs and one of the player’s of the season in the Premier League.
