FIFA agent Antonio Caliendo claims Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar is “without doubt superior to Mario Balotelli.”
The organiser of the Golden Foot awards and consultant to many top clubs feels the 21-year-old Senegalese forward is a star in the making.
“I told him to remember that in terms of quality he is without doubt superior to Balotelli,” Caliendo told Tuttomercatoweb.
“I am accustomed to seeing champions and perhaps my greatest ability was spotting them as teenagers. I saw a unique potential in him aged 16, as he has something extraordinary and with the ball at his feet can keep an eye on everything.
“The more he goes forward, the more you will see that I am right.”
