"I think the best thing we can say about him is his speed, and how quickly he can run," Kaka, speaking courtesy of Adidas, told Omnisport.

"Of course he's not just running because he has very good control when he is running.

"And he is also just 19 years old, but he sometimes seems like he is 35 years old – very mature, controls the game, [makes] good choices.
