Cagliari coach Allegri likens Nene to Batistuta
Allegri told Gazzetta dello Sport: "President Cellino found Nene in Madeira, playing for Nacional. He's a fox-in-the-box with a shot that does damage.
"Nene reminds me of the first Batistuta. If he continues to work hard he can become one of the revelations of Serie A."
