Ghana ace Badu likens Man Utd whiz Diallo to Eto'o, Gervinho

Ghana international Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has likened Manchester United whizkid Amad Diallo to Samuel Eto'o.

Verona midfielder Agyemang-Badu has also played in Italy with Udinese.

On former Atalanta winger Diallo, he told BBC Sport: “Diallo is a mix of some quality African players.

“He has this quality of Eto'o's of being very strong on the ball, knows how to hold the ball and is a good passer. (He is like) Gervinho when it comes to pace.

“He is only 18-years-old and we don't need to put pressure on him, but just allow him to do what he likes best.

“Guide him on one or two things and he'll improve and be one of the best players we've seen on the continent."
