Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has played down comparisons between his game and that of World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane, saying: “I see myself as more of a Yaya Toure.”
Milinkovic-Savic scored 12 goals in 35 appearances for Lazio as the Biancoceleste finished fifth in Serie A in 2017-18, and his performances drew comparisons to former France, Juventus and Real Madrid star Zidane.
The 23-year-old is now with the Serbia squad, preparing for their World Cup Group E opener against Costa Rica, and says he is relishing the pressure of stepping onto the game’s biggest stage.
“I think that I’m in a really good place right now,” he told FIFA.com.
“Pressure? I love pressure, it gets the best out of me. That’s when I feel the best and give maximum on the pitch – those who know me can confirm that.
