Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has likened new signing Felipe Caicedo to Chelsea ace Didier Drogba.

"He is a big, strong guy with pace," said Eriksson. "He has a very good left foot.

"At 19, he's good for now, very good, and good for the future. He will get even better.

"He played for Basle in the UEFA Cup and he plays international football so he shouldn't have any problem with the Premier League.

"With his pace and strength it should not be difficult for him.

"There is a little bit of Drogba, maybe. I am not sure if he will score as many goals as Drogba. That we will have to wait and see. But he is a good player and I am very happy to have him."
