El Shaarawy issues Juve warning

Stephan El Shaarawy has warned semi-final opponents Juventus that his Milan outfit want to lift the Italian Cup.

The two teams will meet in the last four of the competition after the Rossoneri disposed of Lazio at San Siro last night.

“We’re happy that we have made it through,” noted the 19-year-old forward. “We did well to come back from being a goal down to win 3-1.

“It certainly won’t be easy against Juventus in the next round. It’ll be a battle, but we always aim for the maximum.”

The summer signing from Genoa played all of the 90 minutes in the game to confirm his recent good form.

“I’m happy with my performance and that I have the faith of boss Massimiliano Allegri,” he continued. “I’m really satisfied with what I was able to do out there.”
