Zaccheroni big fan of AC Milan striker El Shaarawy

Former AC Milan boss Alberto Zaccheroni is a big fan of striker Stephan El Shaarawy.

Zacc gave his opinion of Milan's current strike-force.

"[Stephan] El Shaarawy is not playing to his full potential, I think he has extraordinary ability.

"He's shown that in the past, and that's why [Milan Coach Filippo] Inzaghi must work with him to allow him to express himself in the best possible way.

"Milan need a presence in the penalty area. You can still take risks to win, but there always have to be players in the box.

"For example, earlier in the season [Keisuke] Honda could always find the space and time to move forward and attack balls into the box.

"In that regard, his goals this season are all photocopies but it's not always going to go that well.

"That's why I'm hoping Fernando Torres can get back to his best, [at the moment] he's confirming the notion that Spaniard have trouble settling in our League."
