Sarri won’t compare Milik to Higuain

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has refused to draw any comparison between Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik and departed superstar Gonzalo Higuain.

Milik scored a brace as Napoli ran out 3-1 winners over Bologna to move, at least temporarily, to the top of the Serie A table one point ahead of reigning champions Juventus who face Inter Milan on Sunday night.

Sarri was quick to squash any excitement about going top.

"We watch everyone from the top? This makes me laugh; it is an incomplete table. We complicated our lives ourselves today after a first half in absolute domination. It was clear that we had left life in the opponents who should have already been put out of the game. For the number of chances we created the final result was clear," he said after the match.

The Napoli boss insists Milik has a lot to learn before he can be compared with Higuain.

"I refuse to make a comparison to Higuain. We speak of a 22-year-old boy in his first time in an important championship.

"We cannot compare him to a forward that is fully mature, and in this moment the best striker in the world. He needs to grow, he must take his path and this comparison should not even cross his mind."
