Babacar rejects Balotelli comparison

Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar has distanced himself from comparisons with Manchester City's Mario Balotelli.

The 17-year-old from Senegal scored in the Viola's 3-0 victory over Reggina in the Fourth Round of the Coppa Italia last night.

Asked if he appreciated being likened to Balotelli, he said: "I don't like this definition.

"I'm a good kid."

Reflecting on the game, Babacar said: "Meanwhile I am enjoying the goal I scored. I hope to be able to do even better.

"Mihajlovic has been following my progress with a lot of care. He helps me and I am happy."
