“I’m not like Antonio,” the Under-21 international stated from the Azzurri’s Coverciano training base on Monday. “He is a champion, while I am a young player who has it all to prove.
“He’s a really strong player, but I don’t aspire to be like him. I look up to [Juventus idol] Del Piero. As a kid I watched all of his goals and I’d love to ‘steal’ his curling shots.”
