El Shaarawy: AC Milan are bitter & disappointed

The forward admits he has developed concerns over the San Siro side's ongoing struggles, but believes they are on the right path and will soon hit form
Stephan El Shaarawy has conceded that AC Milan's disappointing start to the season has generated a sense of "bitterness" in the dressing room.

The Rossoneri were held to a scoreless draw in Tuesday's Champions League Group C opener at home to Anderlecht, but the young attacker is adamant they are on the right track and have to keep up the hard work.

"For us at the moment, the three points would be very important. There’s bitterness and disappointment. We know that it’s not a good spell, but we have to react," El Shaarawy was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"We‘re a compact and united group, able to overcome difficulties. The fans must have faith in us and the team has to be aware of its abilities.

"We’re continuing to create a lot of chances. We have to stay on this road because it’s the right one. The goals will come; we just have to think about working ahead of the next game."

Milan resume match action away against Udinese on Sunday.
