AC Milan starlet returns to action after lenghty injury

El Shaarawy - AC MilanFour months after his last match, starlet has resumed playing after taking part in a primavera match.

The forward played 35 minutes for Milan against Hellas Verona, which ended 2-1 for the home side, and was content to be back.

“These last few months have been tough but I am happy,” El Shaarawy told Sportmediaset.

“My first training session with the team was exciting but many were close to me.

“[Filippo] Inzaghi told me to commit and I felt good, with the right spirit.

“I am giving everything I have to return [to the first team] as soon as possible, I am looking forward to helping Milan reach Europe.

“Then there is the national team, I believe in a call up [for the World Cup]  and I want a spot in the squad.

“The recent call up by [Cesare] Prandelli was a commendation, I felt well and I was happy to meet again all my Azzurri teammates.”

El Shaarawy has been sidelined for four months after undergoing surgery to fix a problem in the fourth metatarsal bone of his left foot.
