Keita Baldé Diao cannot be compared to Hernanes insists agent Ulisse Savini
Ulisse Savini, the agent of Keita Baldé Diao, insists the winger cannot be compared to Hernanes.
The 18 year-old’s starring role in Lazio’s 2-0 win at Chievo on Sunday has led to suggestions that he can be a replacement for Hernanes, who joined Internazionale last month.
Savini, however, doesn't want too much pressure put on Keita, even if he believes the youngster could play a prominent role in the coming months.
“After the departure of Hernanes there’s been a bit of trepidation,” Savini told Radio Radio.
“Nobody was quite sure how the lad would react given his newfound responsibility. But I’ve known him for a long time and knew he wouldn’t have any trouble.
“Hernanes and Keita are two very different player and shouldn’t be compared.
“The lad has a contract with Lazio until 2017, and everyone’s happy with the agreement that’s in place at the moment.”
