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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
