Cutrone plays down Inzaghi comparisons
Comparisons between Filippo Inzaghi and Patrick Cutrone are premature, according to the rising AC Milan star.
AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone has played down comparisons with Rossoneri favourite Filippo Inzaghi after finding the net again in a 3-0 Europa League win at Ludogorets on Thursday.
Cutrone's 13th goal of the season - a glancing header from a Hakan Calhanoglu cross - opened the scoring for Milan, before a Cosmin Moti foul on the striker led to the penalty that paved the way for Ricardo Rodriguez to make it 2-0.
Fabio Borini came off the bench to score Milan's third in stoppage time, but it is 20-year-old Cutrone who continues to excite supporters.
Such form has seen some tout Cutrone as the next Inzaghi - the former Italy international having scored 126 goals in 300 appearances for Milan.
"I am pleased, because he was a great Milan striker, but it's still too early for that sort of comparison," Cutrone told Sky Sport Italia.
Discussing the match, he added: "It was a very difficult game today, we did well despite the initial pressure.
"I am happy with what we are doing and must always thank my team-mates for the goals I score.
"I lost the ball a few too many times today, but I'm working on it and eager to improve."
