Villa midfielder Gil sees Silva as role model

Aston Villa midfielder Carles Gil admits Manchester City ace David Silva is his role model.

The 22-year-old admits he has got a long way to go before he can get anywhere near Silva's level.

But he will continue to mould his game on the style of the City star.

"I've learned a lot just by watching him," said Gil. "I've always wanted to be that type of player.

"He is the best player in the Premier League and I would love to be as good as him."
