El Shaarawy ‘better’ than Ibra

The Milan website has been quick to highlight the impressive scoring streak of young gun Stephan El Shaarawy.

The 19-year-old sensation has grabbed five goals in his last four matches, a better finishing record than Zlatan Ibrahimovic achieved during his San Siro career.

The Swede, sold by the Diavolo to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, was able to score in four consecutive ties, but he only grabbed four goals – and two of those were penalties.

El Shaarawy’s strikes have come against Udinese, a brace versus Cagliari, Parma and Zenit St Petersburg.

The former Juventus and Inter man rippled the net in wins over Palermo, Inter, Fiorentina and Auxerre during the 2010-11 campaign.
