Former AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko compares current Rossoneri forward Stephan El Shaarawy to himself.

Andriy Shevchenko has compared AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy to himself following the youngster's impressive start to life at the San Siro.

El Shaarawy has been tipped to have a big future after securing his place as a regular starter for Milan and Shevchenko believes that there are comparisons between him and the Italy international.

The former Milan striker told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "I don't know who El Shaarawy can be compared to. I also believe that comparisons are harmful, because every champion is different.

"But Stephan has something that reminds me of myself, for example when he accelerates."

The 21-year-old scored his first goal in the Champions League on Wednesday against Zenit St. Petersburg.
