< ![CDATA[MILANO - After the friendly match against Renate, Stephan El Shaarawy spoke to the press about the performance and about expectations for the season. He said:"We all really want to bounce back because last season was not one of the best but now we really want to start well. We are currently working very hard at Milanello and the ingredients are in place to have a good season. Modic is a young player with a very bright future but all the Primavera players are doing really well. This is only the beginning, there is still a lot of work to do but there is plenty of enthusiasm and lots of desire to do well. I want to start playing and now I have scored so I am very happy. The 4-3-3 formation is the one I prefer and I feel Inzaghi has faith in me. I wish coach Allegri a lot of luck because he really gave me so much confidence. I like playing with Constant and Saponara, we play good one-twos, they are great players but we still have to work on our moves. We are a little tired because we have been working so hard and we still have to get into our best shape but we are certainly doing well. I have always had a good relationship with Inzaghi, even when he was my teammate, he has brought a lot of enthusiasm and he wants to show what he can do. Balotelli is a great player, he will do well and we are waiting for him. This season we only have the league to think about, for good or bad. In September Italy play against Holland and it is a goal I have set myself but before that I have to do well with Milan."]]>
