El Shaarawy-Niang star in Milan training game


STEPHAN EL SHAARAWY and M’Baye Niang scored Milan’s goals in the 5-1 win over the Primavera.

After losing to Zenit at Stadio San Siro on Tuesday evening, Milan are working in anticipation of the game against Torino on Sunday afternoon and Allegri set a game today between the 1st team and the Primavera.

As reported by acmilan.com, the practice match started at around 15:00 pm. Massimiliano Allegri used a rather strong XI and the attack consisted of Robinho, M’Baye Niang and Stephan El Shaarawy.

Milan-Zenit: Official line-ups

The 17-year-old Niang, who turns 18 later this month, scored twice for the first team of the Rossoneri. Niang played just six minutes this season since moving from Caen for around €3 million. There were talks that he might leave in January but it now seems unlikely. Niang is expected to play next week in the Coppa.

The Frenchman youngster scored two of Milan’s goals, but Stephan El Shaarawy did even better than him and netted a hat-trick in today’s training game. Ezekiel Isoken Henty (born in 1993) scored the only goal for the Primavera. Allegri used 4-3-3 in the game with Abbiati in goal, De Sciglio, Mexes, Yepes and Constant in defense, Strasser, De Jong and Nocerino in the midfield and Robinho, Niang, El Shaarawy up front.

Riccardo Montolivo appears to be a huge doubt for Torino as he’s suffering from a thigh problem. Ignazio Abate may be fit for Torino while Luca Antonini hopes to make it for the Reggina Coppa game.


  1. I just wish Allegri would use Niang over Pazzini! I mean as terrible as Pazzini is Niang deserves a chance to prove himself as I believe him and El Sharaawy would play well together!

  2. dont blame allegri. for a young player to get a chance in milan, he has to shine in practices and primera games which has something niang had failed to do. now, he just showing his potential.

  3. Very good. Hopefully this translates to more time for Niang on the pitch during competitive matches. Same goes for Strasser.

    • I was telling that a whole time why did they had to give Cassano and 7 milions for Pazzini when we have younger and better striker.

  4. Well done! Niang is still young.
    But let’s hope he can impress in the Coppa like El Shaa did, and he will be given his space 🙂
    I really hope he can explode after his opportunity.
    I wouldn’t mind if this very same line-up tried by Allegri was actually put to use against Torino, especially with Montolivo doubtful.

  5. @Stephan Kareem El Shaawary, That is one of the worst transfer deal in football and many fans here supports that move. Even Boriello is way better than Panzini.

  6. Niang…

    If he works hard enough, he can be our last year’s El Shaarawy. Who plays and scores in the Coppa, and gets minutes in the league. I hope he can improve well, i don’t think Galliani spent 3M Euros on a rubbish player.

  7. carlos puyol has admiration for milan and he want is club to play rossoneri.i think he is out of is mind.for that taught

  8. Hey guys milan may not be so gud real live.but hav u tried dem on ps2.jeez! dey r awesome.i used dem 2 beat my friend usin barca 3-1(we r on d same level mind u).but d secret is a 4-2-4 formation.wit bojan nd pazzini as CF’S den pato nd robinho as d left nd right wingers respectively.den de jong/boateng nd montolivo in central mid field.gosh! Its amazin.hope hav bin able 2 help dose milan fans wu find it difficult 2 use milan in pes 2013.NOTE:if u luv urself don’t use/start el shaarawy he’s not gud in d game @ all.BTW:Bojan is d best milan forward in d game,he’s amazin.

  9. acbaba, i wont stand playing Pazzini even on ps2 haha especially in the expense of having Shaarawy on the bench.. Wft

  10. Niang > Pazzini
    All i want in January is a good and young CB, and a creative midfielder who can hold the ball. (Still have dreams of Christian Eriksen)

  11. Btw, we should bring Albertazzi back, he’s looking very promising and his club is in 3rd place in Serie B.

  12. ^ disagree bro . We need an experienced defender . N i dnt tink albertazzi has game time . Agree bout the cam tho

  13. We nid a bal playin mf so badly . Also a reliable hitman (llronte ) im not a fan of balotelli as he is too unpredictable . I Dnt tink we wud buy any1 sensible tho . Prolly get biabany or sumtin
