The West Ham United forward got off the mark against Everton at the weekend.
The Real Madrid and Bayern Munich wingers are arguably two of the best in the game in their positions, and their CV's are surely the envy of 99 per cent of their peers.
Bale has won four Champions League titles during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, whilst Robben has seven Bundesliga titles, two Premier League winner's medals, a La Liga title and a Champions League trophy to his name.
Yarmolenko, meanwhile, is yet to his the heights of his more esteemed peers.
The Ukrainian signed for West Ham from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, for a fee believed to be worth somewhere in the region of £17.5 million, and he scored his first two goals for the club away at Everton on Sunday.
And Cascarino offered high words of praise for the 28-year-old, when speaking exclusively to the Times:
“Yarmolenko is like Gareth Bale and Arjen Robben in the way that he wants to play on the right and cut in on to his left foot. As an opposing defender, you cannot allow him to do that or he will punish you more often than not. And it is also obvious that he will try to do it at every opportunity.”
Yarmolenko is undoubtedly a very good player, but Cascarino's comments seem to be slightly exaggerated to say the very least.
