Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy has dismissed criticism from the media that he and new signing Mario Balotelli cannot play together in the same team.



From their two matches together, Balotelli has three goals, including two penalties, but the Rossoneri top scorer El Shaarawy has yet to hit the net.

But the Italy international feels the relationship has plenty of potential:

"We accept everything that's written in the papers, and the criticism, but it seems a bit excessive to me to talk about this after only two games, and we need time to find and try out our ideas.

"It takes time and we know that we have to improve in certain aspects, and I don't think there is an incompatibility between us, also because at Udinese I made an assist for Mario, and in training we're playing well. There's no problem of any kind"

The El Shaarway may be yet to find his touch alongside Balotelli, but if you have yours, you can sell my iPod Touch with Music Magpie.
