05/14/2002. Roma striker Vincenzo Montella says he is surprised to be compared with Paolo Rossi, Italy's top scorer in the 1982 World Cup.

The Italian media have suggested that the ex-Sampdoria man could emulate Rossi's achievements in Japan and South Korea, while even captain Paolo Maldini has compared the two.

"He's a great champion and I don't think these comparisons should be made," said Montella. "I don't think we are alike."

montella is far more gifted player then rossi but rossi was super nimble and gifted as well but he hasnt got the overall technique and flair of montella ..to be fair rossi was basically a better version of inzaghi..as in quicker better finsher and header and a bit better techinuqe but not much...
