Every word Bryan Gil said on what Nuno told him he must do, his hair and his favourite player


What has been the biggest challenge of moving to a new country?

It has been a very significant challenge, but it is a decision me and my family made and I am very happy about it. I am very happy to be here, I have been made very welcome by the club and the players. I am very happy to be here and I want to adapt and be very important for my team.

Who has helped you settle in?

Reggy has been helping me so much here, he was the first one to contact me, he has helped me out and has explained what the situation is like here.

How have you found the physical nature of the Premier League?

It is different to the football I have played in Spain, it is a quicker pace and more attack and defence. It also is very beautiful football and very enjoyable.

Who are your inspirations as a young player?

Like any player I like dribbling the ball and my favourite player is Lionel Messi and I also pay a lot of attention to how Angel Di Maria plays.

What do you need to add to your game, is it scoring goals?

Hopefully I will be able to score many goals and help my team like that but I can tell you I will be contributing with a lot of hard work and effort.

Can you be the player to create for Harry Kane?

Harry Kane is a great player and a natural goalscorer and I hope I can help him score many more goals.

What did the manager and chairman tell you about your career and the club and how you and they would develop?

Well, the conversation we had about our contract is something private. It’s something that discussed over the phone so I’ll keep that to myself, but I can tell you for sure that they are very willing to see me give my all to give hard work and that’s what I’m trying to do.

What have you learned from the examples of players like David Silva and Cesc Fabregas, who came from Spain to English football when they were young?

Well as you were saying, the games here are more physical and I believe that the players that you mentioned were really good at adapting and they adapted really well. That helped them and I hope I can fo that as well they did and that I can continue to keep it up.

Do you see your favourite position being in midfield, out wide or as a number 10?

My favourite position is as a left winger but I can adapt to any position that the manager tells me to.

In Spain, you were described as an old school winger playing in a different time? Did you like that description?

Well, yes, there has been a lot of opinions about that and all of the opinions are to be respected of course.

I do think it carries some truth. I do like playing one-to-one, I like to keep the area in the centre and I think that describes old football but I think I also have adapted and I like to play inside.

Your hair is seen as a bit of a throwback, is it Beatles influenced?

I have had my hair styled this way since I was 10-years-old. I haven’t had it changed much. I don’t really like to have short hair.

Many people have compared it to the Beatles but it’s not because of that. I’ll just keep it that way until I get tired of it.

Has Nuno asked you to work on any areas of your game?

This is something that everyone has noticed, they have been asking me to work hard and put a lot of effort into it. I have been requested to gain some weight and to improve my physical condition and learn English. I am focusing on that and adapting.
