Pippo Inzaghi felt Milan “deserved victory” after a 2-2 draw at Sampdoria, but was pleased for “a real Stephan El Shaarawy style goal.”

The Rossoneri extended their winless streak to four games, but it was an improvement from their 2-0 home defeat to Palermo.

“This is the Milan we’d always seen. Something unthinkable happened against Palermo, as one was an own goal and another Abate’s injury, so it was tough to get back into it,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s a shame we got the draw today, as I think we deserved to win. If we continue like this then I think we’ll become a very good team.

“We played good football today, there were some strange moments in the game and debatable decisions, but I compliment the lads. Mexes hadn’t played at all this season, but he gave his all tonight.

“I thought Fernando Torres had taken his position in the box and was pulled down, but perhaps the referee was closer and saw better than I did.

“There was some disappointment in the locker room, as we deserved the victory. We were a goal up and pushing for the second, but then right before half-time we conceded the equaliser and that changed things. We know that we have to improve and it’s not easy against this Sampdoria side.”

El Shaarawy had not scored since February 2013, but broke the drought with a sensational curling strike.

“I am very happy for him. I told him before the game that this was his kind of match, he just needed to relax and tonight he scored a real El Shaarawy style goal.

“It’s a shame Bonera was sent off, as he had a great game and we will really miss him in the derby.”

Giacomo Bonaventura was used in midfield for a 4-3-3 system this evening, while Mattia De Sciglio switched to right-back.

“Bonaventura can play anywhere. He’s the kind of player a Coach loves, as you put him anywhere and he’ll be consistent. He’s a great player, a great guy, and I am very happy he’s come to Milan.

“De Sciglio is probably more at ease on the right, but asking him he might actually prefer to be on the left. He’s ambidextrous.”
