Santos' Montillo: Do not compare me to Ganso
Santos' new signing Walter Montillo has asked fans to be patient and not compare the Argentine with his predecessor, Ganso.
Montillo was officially unveiled at a press conference at Vila Belmiro on Monday and joined his teammates for his first training session afterwards.
The playmaker told reporters: "The comparisons are bad, but we can't always escape it. Recently he was the best number 10 shirt of Santos. Nobody doubts my quality, but I want to do my job.
"We are different, he is more thoughtful and not as direct, while I'm more straightforward, but even so it is better. Ganso is gone, he was important to Santos, but now is the time to show my work.
"I have not spoken with the coach, I did my first workout with teammates, but I didn't talk with Muricy. I will play where he needs me to. Everybody knows my game, but I have no preconceptions."
