Stephan El Shaarawy: No problem with AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri

Stephan El Shaarawy: No problem with AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri

El Shaarawy was surprisingly left out of the Milan starting line-up for last weekend's clash with Napoli fuelling rumours of a bust-up with Allegri.

The 20-year-old insists he has no problem with Allegri's team selection and claims he has a good relationship with the manager.

"It was a decision taken by the coach and I fully respect it, like I have always respected substitutions in the past," El Shaarawy told Milan Channel.

"He has given me lots of confidence and shown a lot of belief in me, so there is no problem whatsoever. I respect his choices and, in the game against Napoli, he preferred to start with Robinho.

"There is no problem between the coach and I, we have a good relationship and we always have had. I am relaxed, I have done well until now and I just want to keep improving."

El Shaarawy's agent, Roberto La Florio, also rejected talk of a bust-up and denied talk that the player might be forced to leave the San Siro.

"Allegri is a personality coach and his choice is legitimate, there are no problems," La Florio told RTL.

"Let's not forget that Stephan is a 20-year-old boy playing in one top club like Milan. A future away from Milan? For now I have no reason to even think about it, it is a marriage without crisis."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
