Saul also says it was dream come true when Fernando Torres returned to the club.
He said, "With Torres at Atleti I started to love Gerrard and I thought I wanted to look like him.
"That's why I work hard, up and back, arriving on the second line ... I think Steven had it all, he was super complete and I've I tried to work to look like him.
"Playing with Torres is the best thing that ever happened to me."
