Former AC Milan midfielder Stefano Eranio believes Stephan El Shaarawy needs a change of role.
Eranio, now youth coach with Genoa, says the striker should be dropped into midfield.
â€śAt the start of last season, El Shaarawy showed all of his qualities by dragging his team forward in a moment of difficulty,â€ť Eranio told Tuttosport.
â€śThen he got lost a bit because perhaps he didnâ€™t feel the faith of the environment and everything he was attempting didnâ€™t come off.
â€śI think that affected him in the closing stages of the championship and that is without taking into account his technical characteristics.
â€śI think he would be more suited to playing in a midfield role rather than as a wide striker. Anyhow, I think this could be the season of his consecration.â€ť
