AC Milan caretaker coach Mauro Tassotti was delighted with two-goal Stephan El Shaarawy after victory over Cagliari.

The youngster struck both goals in the 2-0 win.

"He is gaining in confidence and doing very well. He creates many problems for the opposition defences and right now he is really helping us," said Tassotti.

"What is our objective this season? I think the fans have understood the difficult moment the squad is going through and are close to us."
