Catania winger Cristian Llama has revealed that Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is the inspiration behind his current good form.
The 23-year-old Argentine has turned heads in Serie A this season, with a string of exciting displays making him a big fish in a small pond at the Stadio Angelo Massimino.
The Rossazzurri are relegation candidates from Italy's top flight, currently hovering just four points above the drop-zone under the guidance of former Lazio defender Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Former Arsenal de Sarandi and Newell's Old Boys wide man Llama is expected to leave the club should Mihajlovic fail to keep them up, and he would like to end up at a big club like his hero Giggs.
"My role model is Ryan Giggs of Manchester United," Llama told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I'd like to go to a big club. Even though before that I want to finish the job and help Catania to safety," added Llama, while stressing his happiness at the club at present.
"Here I'm good, I don't want to be misunderstood. Anyway, I have no preferences, when I was a child I dreamed of Inter Milan or Juventus, but would be fine with Fiorentina too."
