Toto Schillaci: I see myself in AC Milan striker Gianluca Lapadula

Former Juventus star Toto Schillaci is a big fan of AC Milan striker Gianluca Lapadula.

Lapadula is beginning to now shine for Vincenzo Montella's Milan.

And Schillaci told Gazzetta dello Sport: "If I see myself in him? Yes, we are very similar.

"Gianluca takes part in the attack, he can dribble and has an eye for goal. He puts his soul on the field, just as I did. Coming from below, from the periphery, helps: he's from Pescara, me Messina.

"And now he can only grow. He aas an advantage: in my day the marking was man for man, he can now take advantage of more space and opportunities."
