Stephan El Shaarawy is young, talented and a significant piece of the AC Milan attack. The up-and-coming star is already making history and should only continue to get better as the season progresses.
El Shaarawy became the youngest Milan player ever to score a goal in a Champions League match. He set the mark on Oct. 4 with a goal in the 3-2 win against Zenit St. Petersburg. El Shaarawy was 19 years and 342 days old.
AC Milan has struggled in the early part of the Serie A schedule. They have just seven points in six matches and sit 11th in the table. As the season continues, Milan will start to look more toward the young El Shaarawy to provide a spark.
With eight months of the Serie A slate still to go, El Shaarawy has ample time to develop in one of the best leagues in Europe before he even turns 20. Even with his youth, he should only get better, and here is why.
