Milan Legends: El Shaarawy Is A New Messi

A bunch of Ex-Milan players and legends hailed the Milan’s new rising star El Shaarawy for his recent performances.

All Hail El Shaarawy!!!

Andriy Shevchenko said,

“ He (El Shaarawy) is fast, technically gifted and has the freshness that you need in the difficult moments,”

“I don’t want to compare him with any legends. Because comparisons can be harmful sometimes”

“But he has something that reminds me of myself, for example the way he accelerates.”

Dejan Savicevic in a recent interview to Gazzetta dello Sport said,

“El Shaarawy has all the qualities needed to become a great player, but it’s too early for comparisons. He still needs to grow,”

“He’s quick, he has a good shot and can scores with ease.”

“It’s important that he’s scoring in a difficult moment for Milan…”

Jose Altafini also praised the youngster,

“El Shaarawy reminds me of Neymar and Messi, they all have a low center of gravity. They play with the ball glued to their feet.”

“The important thing is not to bulk him up too much this season.”

Comparisons continues…

Ganz said,

 “He reminds me of Neymar because they both like to start from deep. He’s very good at going straight for goal.”

“He’s also an intelligent player, who is now showing that he can score regularly too.”
