A long way to go for Icardi

Inter’s Mauro Icardi admits he has much to learn after being compared with the likes of Gabriel Batistuta, Hernan Crespo and Diego Milito.

“Batistuta was always my idol, but Crespo had a fantastic career too,” the summer signing from Sampdoria told Sky Sport Italia.

“Milito is Milito. Everyone knows what he's done in his career up till now and I still have a long way to go to achieve what he has.”

The young Argentine has had a problematic opening to the season, one affected by injury, but he’s still made the headlines for his Tweets of love aimed at Wanda Nara – the former wife of Catania striker Maxi Lopez.

“Social networking is a part of everyday life nowadays, but I don't write anything special – it's other people who write all sorts of things,” he claimed.

“Anyhow, I'm not going to talk about my private life. I want people to talk about what I do on the pitch.

“What's my dream for 2014? You have to build your dreams one day at a time.”
