‘Toro’s Bakic like a young Kaka’

Marko Bakic has used his official presentation at Torino to highlight the comparisons between himself and Milan legend Kaka.

The teenager, who will celebrate his 19th birthday in November, has been netted by the newly promoted outfit from Mogren.

“A lot of people in my country say that I am like a young Kaka,” he explained. “I am thus better in attack than in the defensive phase.

“I look to provide assists, to score when I can, and Torino could become a very important team for me,” he continued.

“Toro are very forward thinking, they like to play football and they love to keep possession of the ball.”

Bakic, who has arrived in Turin at a cost of around €3m, is an attacking midfielder who is also in the Montenegro national set-up.

“I’m an Italian football fan and I’m happy to be here,” he added. “I’ve always watched Serie A games when I had the chance.

“I therefore know a few of the players here already such as Jean-Francois Gillet, Mario Santana and Alessio Cerci.

“I feel ready to make a contribution to Torino.”
