Celta Vigo striker Aspas hails Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Jr: He plays like me

Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas says there's two young players in the LaLiga who play similar to him.

Aspas admits he's a fan of Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix and Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior.

He told AS: "In the LaLiga there's Vinicius or Joao Felix, who will be able to improve their numbers over the years. At Celta I wouldn't know how to tell you because there is still no such type of player who is the same as me. Perhaps Brais due to the characteristics can become it."

Aspas admits Vinicius' development has surprised him.

"Yes, especially facing the goal. Decision making in the area is not easy, it is something that is learned over the years. In the last thirty metres he is very, very decisive because he is very fast and has such an explosive one-on-one. Knowing how to choose within the area has led him to take such a big step this year."
