New Torino signing Marko Bakic has welcomed comparisons with Real Madrid star Kaka.

The teenager, who will celebrate his 19th birthday in November, was signed from Mogren.

"A lot of people in my country say that I am like a young Kaka," he explained. "I am thus better in attack than in the defensive phase.

"I look to provide assists, to score when I can, and Torino could become a very important team for me," he continued.

"Toro are very forward thinking, they like to play football and they love to keep possession of the ball."
