El Shaarawy rues bad luck

Created on 10 Jan., 2013 6:02 PM GMT

AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy believes his side were unlucky to lose to Juventus in the Coppa Italia quarter-final on Wednesday.

El Shaarawy gifted AC Milan an early lead, but Sebastian Giovinco levelled the scoring shortly after, before Mirko Vucinic netted in extra time to make it 2-1.

"I'm happy with my goal and our performance. We played a good game and created a lot of chances. Their second goal came from a bit of unlucky deflection for us," El Shaarawy told the club's website.

"It's a disappointing loss. We held our own well and defended well. We didn't concede any really big chances, but they did well technically especially when Vucinic came on and then scored.

"Now we have to get back to work on Sunday, which is a fundamental game for the league to stay in the race for the top spots in the table."

AC Milan resume match action away from home against Sampdoria on Sunday.
