Amauri keen to match Inter Milan's Ibrahimovic

Amauri accepts he is Juventus' answer to Inter Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ahead of last night's 1-0 defeat at the San Siro, Amauri revealed: "At Chievo some would call me 'our Ibra', a comparison that made me very happy, because he is a champion.

"Perhaps they saw in us a similar way of playing tricks with the ball. I watched him play in the Champions League and thought to myself, one day I would be there on level terms with him.

"I don't want to stop here, though. I haven't achieved anything at Juve yet and still have to prove that I belong here."
