Menez joined the Giallorossi from Monaco in the summer.
“Menez has qualities like those of Totti and Messi,” Cufre told Tuttomercatoweb.com.
“He had a little difficulty settling down at Roma after their negative period early on.
“I spoke with the Roma directors as they wanted some advice on him and I told them that he should be considered a world-class player like Messi and Totti.
“I have seen Menez do incredible things but it’s not always easy to settle down in Italy. He just has to keep on training well and I am sure the fans will love him.”
