Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini says it is not the right time to compare Mauro Icardi to Gonzalo Higuain.
Icardi who was the joint topscorer in the Serie A last season has not been able to find the net compared to compatriot Higuain.
Inter skipper Mauro Icardi has only four goals to Higuain’s 10. But Mancini think it is still too early to compare the two.
“Gonzalo has international experience that Mauro doesn’t have yet,” the Inter coach said of the Argentinian pair.
“It’s impossible to compare them right now, Mauro still has his whole career ahead of him.
“There will be disappointments along the way but I know he’ll become a fantastic striker because he knows exactly where the goal is. He will be a top goalscorer.”
Inter and Napoli have lost just once each in the league this term and look set to challenge Juventus’ recent domestic dominance.
With two points separating the sides, Mancini added: “In these games the players have to give everything.
“We need to stay alert and make sure we attack in numbers in order to score. Right now we’re ahead – we’re in first place and that’s very important.
“It’ll be a big test because it’s our first match against a direct rival away from San Siro. That said, we’re only in week 14 and there are four teams right up there, so the match won’t change anything.
“I think we’ll all be fighting right until the end.”
