    Question Is “similar” necessary here?

    I hope someone someday falls for me the way Wenger has fallen for Diaby. Or, I hope someone someday falls for me similarly to the way Wenger has fallen for Diaby.
    Please elaborate.

    Re: Is “similar” necessary here?

    Your first sentence is fine. Inserting 'similarly to' would necessitate other changes, making the sentence over-long and cumbersome.
