Villa whiz Weimann: Chelsea striker Torres my hero

Aston Villa superkid Andi Weimann admits he grew up idolising Chelsea striker Fernando Torres.

Weimann is the talk of Villa's support after his winner against Fulham.

"Well when I was about 14 I used to love Fernando Torres, so I still watch him play, yeah," he told Absolute Radio.

"I'm going to try and hopefully get a few more games until the end of the season and we'll see what happens, maybe I can get another goal as well."
