I'm only compared to Kaka because of our looks! - Chelsea's Piazon

Chelsea young gun Lucas Piazon says he only gets compared to Brazilian great Kaka because they look similar.

The 19-year old, who will spend the season on loan in Holland with Vitesse Arnhem, came through the ranks at Sao Paulo just like the Real Madrid midfielder but says he is a different type of player.

Piazon feels that he is only likened to Kaka due to his physical features and not his game style.

"We are both Brazilian and came from the same club. He is more a midfielder and I am an attacker," he told Vitesse's official television channel.

"Kaka, however, is my idol. As a young player, I really look up to him. The comparison is mainly because of our looks."
