AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang says that he is not the new Mario Balotelli.

AC Milan starlet M'Baye Niang has played down comparisons with Italian international forward Mario Balotelli.

The 18-year-old joined the Rossoneri from Caen in August and is believed to have a bright future in the game.

However, Niang admits that he is still a long way from reaching the level of the Manchester City striker.

"I am not the Balotelli of Milan," Niang told Sport Mediaset. "It is way too early to say that.

"Mario is a great player, but I am still very young – I've only played four games for Milan."

Niang scored two goals in 23 games in Ligue 1 last season.
