What makes Gomez's rise all the more enjoyable to witness is the fact that he's had to battle through adversity.

Fame and fortune hasn't changed him — the level-headed nature and humility drummed into him by his dad Gus remains as strong as ever.
Longevity and glory defined Hyypia as a Kop legend as he repaid that modest fee dozens of times over. The stage looks set for Gomez to follow the same path.

I had a two-week trial in under Kevin Keegan and it gave me an insight into English football. I was a young player in Finland and I didn't really expect it to lead to anything.
