The Argentine, nicknamed 'Flaco', scored one, hit the woodwork and generally shone in tonight's 3-1 victory away to Juventus.
"I am happy at the victory. We got a great result and that was the important thing," he told Sky Italia.
"I am playing well, the team is doing great things and so we hope to carry on picking up positive results."
"Am I like Zidane? He was a unique player, a true champion. I can only hope to be like him in future."
The trequartista also admires another Juventus legend, although this one is still at the club.
"I asked for Alessandro Del Piero's shirt after the game. He is an extraordinary champion and that's why I wanted his jersey."
