Niang: Don't compare me to Henry

Milan have unveiled another new signing, with M'Baye Niang laughing off comparisons between himself and countryman Thierry Henry.

The 17-year-old Frenchman was presented as a Rossoneri player a short while ago at Milanello.

"Don't compare me to Thierry Henry and Mario Balotelli,” he said. “I am Niang.”

The former Caen striker is confident he can make an impact right away.

“Am I here for the future? No, I'm here for the present. My dream is to win the Ballon d'Or.”

Niang will not be involved in Milan's game at Bologna on Saturday however, as Fifa are yet to clear the transfer. The teenager scored five times in 30 senior appearances for Caen, and has also broken into the French Under-21 side.
