Ex-Roma coach Capello: Dybala like Totti; Abraham NOT like Batistuta... yet

Former Roma coach Fabio Capello has talked up the potential of the Giallorossi's attack this upcoming season.

Paulo Dybala has joined Tammy Abraham at Roma this summer.

Capello told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Football evolves all the time, but if it's a game I tell you that the Argentine has the touch of the ball, the ability to find a teammate and the ease of scoring that Francesco (Totti) had.

"Abraham like (Gabriel) Batistuta? Let's take it easy. Gabriel was a professor of the penalty area. The sense of goal he possessed has had few players in the world.

"Abraham is certainly more mobile, but we are on another level for the moment."
