MILAN – After Sunday night’s goal versus Parma, the comparisons between Jeremy Menez’s goal and others scored by some of the most technically gifted players during the Berlusconi era have begun. Regardless of the importance of the match and the moment of the season, the back-heel flick stands up against some of the best and how. 
THE BUILD UP: The technique with which Jeremy took the ball round the Parma goalkeeper brings to mind the actions of Dejan Savicevic on the 17th of September 1995 during Roma-Milan. On that day, Dejan took the ball down the left and past the Roma defence with the ball seemingly on its way out for a goal kick but he somehow kept the ball on the field, much to Roma’s surprise, before providing an assist for George Weah in what finished up as a 2-1 victory for the rossoneri. Savicevic went on to repeat similar acts out on the flanks and none more so than his fabulous ball to Roberto Baggio in Milan-Parma 3-0 on the 24th of March 1996. 
THE BACK-HEEL: Jeremy’s back-heel can be compared based on its subtlety to the two brilliant goals scored against Empoli by Marco Van Basten (1988 at the San Siro) and Ricardo Kakà (2003 at the Castellani) striking the ball sweetly from far out and seeing it end up in the back of the net. Jeremy’s fancy flick is also up there for audacity with the goals scored by George Weah against Lazio in December 1995 and by Alexandre Pato versus Roma in January 2009. 
But these are just a few of the moments that come to mind. The wonder goal by Menez is now in the list of all time Milan goals that will make rossoneri fans forever proud.
