German U20 captain Erik Zenga is delighted to be compared to Ghana star Kevin-Prince Boateng.
The 19-year-old VfL Osnabruck midfielder's talent and physical appearance has been likened to the Schalke 04 ace.
Zenga is an up and coming player in German football while Boateng has already played at the FIFA World Cup and flourished in the UEFA Champions League.
He has expressed delight at the comparison with Boateng.
"Boateng is a big player and plays for Schalke in the Bundesliga. He has also played for AC Milan in many great competitions," he said.
"It feels good to be compared to Boateng and I hope to play like him and physically I look like him too."
Boateng's half brother Jerome plays for the German national team.
