Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has praised Stephan El Shaarawy, and has compared him to Brazil international Neymar.
Rossoneri chief Adriano Galliani recently likened the 19-year-old to Anzhi Makhachkala’s Samuel Eto’o, but the PSG trainer feels the Italy international’s characteristics are quite similar to the Brazilian starlet’s instead.
“Galliani comparing El Shaarawy to Eto’o? In terms of characteristics, El Shaarawy reminds me more of Neymar than Eto’o,” Ancelotti told Sky Sports.
“El Shaarawy has had a very good start to the season, and I’m curious to see him playing alongside Pato.”
The attacker joined Milan from Genoa in 2011 and has since developed into an important first team member at the San Siro side.
El Shaarawy has netted five goals in eight appearances for Milan this term.
