Reveillere has emerged as a key player for both Lyon and France this term, after initially struggling to establish himself at the French champions, confident that he has developed as a player since his arrival in 2003.
The talented 26-year-old continues to look at Brazil star Cafu for inspiration, of the opinion that the classy veteran is an ideal prototype for all full-backs.
''My model is Cafu,'' he claimed. ''In my position (right-back), he is a very attacking player.
''He has a good quality in his crosses, he can find solutions and he is a great defender.
''However he is not too young!''
With Gerard Houllier's side riding high both domestically and in Europe, Reveillere continued to reveal that life in the Lyon camp is excellent at present.
''Lyon, it is really the top,'' he concluded. ''For a professional player it is the pinnacle, because we win and we have fun between us.''
