Recoba: Don't compare Palermo kid Cavani with me

Torino attacker Alvaro Recoba insists comparisons with fellow Uruguayan Edison Cavani, the Palermo striker, are wide of the mark.

"We're two completely different players," said Recoba. "Cavani is more of a centre-forward, even if at the moment he is playing often on the wing, he is a genuine striker.

"It's best we do avoid comparisons. He should be left alone to do well in Italy."
