AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini says there is only ‘one Sheva’ when asked about comparisons between Krzysztof Piatek and Andriy Shevchenko.
Maldini and Shevchenko played together in early 2000s when Rossoneri won Champions League in 2003 and reached tournament’s final match in 2005.
Piatek has impressed since joining from Genoa, as Poland international has scored 6 goals in his 5 starting matches.
“A lot of people keep comparing Piatek to Andriy Shevchenko, but there’s only one Sheva,” Maldini told Sky Sport Italia (via Football Italia).
“Besides, Sheva arrived to join an already very strong team and was the extra champion that allowed us to achieve great results.
“Piatek is doing incredible things and joined in a more difficult moment for the club. If he brings us to great heights, then we’ll all be very happy.” added Maldini.
Milan beat Atalanta in Bergamo to keep going 4th in Serie A table. Piatek scored 2 goals.
