Agent urges Napoli fans not to compare Insigne with Lavezzi

The agent of Lorenzo Insigne is eager for fans not to compare him with former Napoli attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Insigne could fill the void left by Lavezzi's move to PSG.

"Lorenzo is one who knows how to play football, who knows his place and is always cheerful, in short, he has the mix that every Coach would want in every player," Antonio Ottaiano told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

"He is, beyond the excitement, motivated by a new adventure, knowing that this year he must walk a different path. He knows what he is capable of and this is very clear.

"He wants to play and knows he can take his chance. The fact that the club reinstated him into the squad at the same time as selling Lavezzi is only a coincidence because I think he would have come back anyway, because he is not a substitute for Lavezzi."
