Mattia De Sciglio flattered by comparisons with AC Milan legend Maldini

AC Milan youngster Mattia De Sciglio is flattered to be compared with Paolo Maldini.

The Under-21 international is breaking his way into the Milan line-up and has been compared with another youth academy product, Maldini.

"Obviously I am honoured by the comparison with a phenomenon beyond reach like Maldini, but I stop there.

"I am young and have to improve in every area of my game. I've got to be more attentive when defending, as in Serie A there are players who will pounce on the slightest inch of space.

"Milan is the ideal place to grow, as I get to learn from all these champions."
