"I won't let a few good games affect me as I know I have to play well with consistency.
"The only thing I have in common with Andrea is the role that we play.
"He's done a lot in his career, a lot for Italian football and he's reached the highest levels. I'm only at the beginning and I still have to demonstrate my ability."
