What about El Shaarawy left foot? His inability to use his left foot is making him more predictive late in the season. Stephan hasn’t work on his left in practice the same way De Sciglio has, so he becomes predictable by side stepping to the right to maneuver an opponent. It is the same event that happened to Arjen Robben at Bayern Munich. Robben first season, he succeeded because defenders weren’t familiar with his style of play. The following season, opponents became familiar with him and he was predictable. When Robben is attacking 1 v 1, everyone in the stadium knows he is going left. This is the same problem Stephan El Shaarawy has entered late in the season. Everyone knows he is going to the right when attacking an opponent.
He needs to develop a left foot pronto. If he can display the same talent he does with his favored foot on his left foot, then he can be unpredictable…..the same way Ribery is now. At times, Stephan has attack going left on 1 v 1 situation, but those attempts are very rare. The ability to pass, cross the ball, and shoot with his left foot will improve his game tremendously. His growth won’t turn him into an AC Milan and Italian legend if he can’t be ambidexterity.
