Fenerbahce coach Zico says defender Diego Lugano deserves to be compared with Juventus hero Paolo Montero.

Uruguay international Lugano is a target for Juve and Zico said: "There is a likeness with Montero, even if they are not similar players. The former Juventino was excellent, technically skillful also in the opposing half of the field.

"Lugano is a defender, pure and simple. But their strong characters are very similar."
