AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani believes that Riccardo Montolivo is becoming the club's new version of Andrea Pirlo.

Adriano Galliani has claimed that AC Milan have found a new Andrea Pirlo in the form of Riccardo Montolivo.

The midfielder joined the club in the summer and has impressed with his performances at the San Siro, prompting Galliani to compare the 28-year-old to Pirlo following Friday's 2-1 win over Parma.

Rossoneri's vice-president told the club's website: "We didn't play in the first half but Montolivo had a good game and is probably playing the best football of his career.

"We have found another Pirlo."

Milan are currently third in Serie A.
