looked up to for

Hello everyone,

Wayne Rooney talking about Paul Gascoigne.

“He was always someone who I looked up to for the way he played football and how good he was. I still think to this day he was the greatest England player.”

Does “someone who I looked up to for” simply mean that Wayne Rooney respected/admired him very much or does it also mean he learned from him?

Thank you.

“Wayne Rooney talking about Paul Gascoigne.”

The above is not a sentence, so it is wrong to capitalize and punctuate it as if it were one.

But how is this structure called if it’s not a sentence?

I often see it in native English sources.
