Agent Oscar Damiani has declared Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia as better than George Best.
The Georgian was likened to the Manchester United great by Christian Vieri last week.
But Damiani said on Radio 1: "I would like to make a slightly mean joke... Let's hope he doesn't have the same head!
"George Best was a great footballer, who made the history of his national team. Kvaratskhelia, however, gives me the feeling of having something more.
"The Georgian is perhaps a stronger footballer, with more drive and physical strength."
