AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy has surprised himself over his scoring success this season.
El Shaarawy tops the scoring charts in Serie A with 14 goals.
â€śItâ€™s all a bit unexpected,â€ť he admitted to La Stampa. â€śA year ago, I would never have believed that I would be Serie A top scorer now.
â€śThe economical crisis has helped me. A lot of youngsters have been given a chance to showcase their skills and theyâ€™ve taken advantage of that.
â€śWe just needed some space â€“ it makes no sense to go and buy players abroad when you already have good players at home.â€ť
