Andrea Pirlo not entirely impressed with AC Milan’s new winter signing

Former AC Milan star Andrea Pirlo has said that he is not entirely convinced with the abilities of Lucas Paqueta. The Brazilian joined the Rossoneri from Flamengo during the winter transfer window and he has since impressed with his skill, flair and confidence on the playing field for the Milan giants.

Amidst this, there have been comparisons between Kaka and Paqueta of late but Pirlo has indicated that the Rossoneri’s winter recruit can even be compared to the former in any aspect. He added that the Brazilian has the potential to become a good player, although that does not mean likening him to former Milan favourite Kaka.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Toshack said that the Welshman should take up the chance of joining the Bianconeri, given he would get to work alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo. He added that the midfielder has not been lucky in terms of injuries over the years and he could transform his fortunes with the Bianconeri by winning more trophies.
