The agent of Stephan El Shaarawy has heaped praise on the influence of Massimiliano Allegri on the AC Milan starlet.

The 20 year-old has jumped to the top of the goal scoring charts in Serie A.

"His inclusion into the team was perfect," Roberto Lo Florio told Radio Marte. "He was gradually inserted in training, and has then come into the first team properly during this second year.

"Credit for that has to go to Allegri.

"I think it's brilliant that finally young players are being given the chance to play in our country."
