AC Milan legend Shevchenko: El Shaarawy reminds me of ... me!

AC Milan legend Andriy Shevchenko is full of praise for young striker Stephan El Shaarawy. The former Chelsea forward is watching El Shaarawy's progress closely.

"El Shaarawy is fast, technically gifted and he has the freshness that you need in the difficult moments," the Ukrainian said.

"Who is he like? I don't know who El Shaarawy can be compared to. I think that comparisons are harmful, because every champion is different.

"But Stephan has something that reminds me of myself, for example in the way that he accelerates."
