Mateja Kezman has talked up the qualities of his client, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and believes he is better than Pogba, with what it takes to challenge for Ballon d’Or.
The Lazio star has become one of the most sought-after midfielder, with United and Madrid reportedly interested in him.
Milinkovic-Savic has nine goals in the Serie A, and 11 in all competitions and Kezman believes his client can be great.
“When Sergej came to Italy, he was compared with Pogba, because at that moment it was probably the easiest comparison to make in terms of characteristics,” Kezman told Mozzart Sport.
“I do really respect Pogba, let’s be clear, and other linkers who can run and work for the team, but I think now Sergej has different and better quality than Pogba.
“Over the last six months, he has made enormous progress at Lazio. If he retains his health, he can become the most complete player on the planet.
“He has remarkable attributes and you’ll not find another player in the world with that power, muscular structure and height combined with technique and tactical awareness. He has the touch of a Brazilian and some of the things he does remind me of Zinedine Zidane.
“Milinkovic-Savic is the most effective midfielder in Europe right now, as he can score goals in a variety of ways and has a good head on his shoulders. I’ve played with Arjen Robben, Frank Lampard and some of the best in Europe and I think Sergej can surpass them if he keeps this up.
“He could soon be a candidate for the Ballon d’Or.”
