'Next-Gerrard' reveals Liverpool dream

Published Add your comment

Liverpool academy product Peter Aylmer has been studying DVDs of club captain and football idol Steven Gerrard in a bid to improve his game.

The 17-year-old midfielder who can also play in defence, is determined to realise his dream of breaking through to the senior team and playing for the club he has supported since a young boy.

Aylmer has played a starring role for the Reds' U18s side this season, and recently helped them to a memorable 2-1 victory over Manchester United.

But the Liverpool-born youngster isn't prepared to stop there, and says that he is modelling his game on the likes of Gerrard, Xavi, and Andres Iniesta - in a bid to catch the eye of Kenny Dalglish.

"Zinedine Zidane, Steven Gerrard, Xavi and Iniesta – they're incredible players in my position," said Aylmer. "I watch DVDs of them playing and try to pick up bits.

"I'm a big Red and grew up as a fan. It doesn't get better than playing for your own team. Just walking in here every day is special."
