Rome, The Shaarawy guarantee of Mourinho: without Zaniolo is decisive. And he’s willing to take a pay cut

Pharaoh is back, better than ever. Stephen The Shaarawy with the goal against Spezia, the stage that had been abandoned for a few months has been recovered (last goal against Verona on October 31). The winger took advantage of the absence of Zaniolo and Pellegrini and put himself at the service of the team, performing above expectations: he phrased with Dybala, shot Joya and didn’t let the one-on-ones intimidate her. A revitalized footballer and, if necessary, also useful to replace Zalewski or Spinazzola on the left in the low-wing role. Mourinhospeaking of Nicolò after the La Spezia game, he said that it is unfair to leave on the bench players who give everything in training.

The renewal

The Shaarawy is one of these, an element that has never created problems, even in this period that is very delicate for him. His contract is about to expire and he is not in discussion with the club. He is waiting for Tiago Pinto to call his tax brother Manuel to talk about a possible renewal. Perhaps, it will happen in the coming weeks when the Zaniolo knot is dissolved and surely the proposal will be lower than the 3.5 million he currently receives. It is not a dilemma because Stephan after collecting Chinese millions from 2019 to 2021 playing the Shanghai Shenhua, would also be willing to take a pay cut. Not by half, but in any case by a number that can cover budgetary needs. His goal, in fact, is to stay in the capital and play his cards. How could it happen next Sunday when the Giallorossi take on Napoli at the Maradona Stadium. Celik is disqualified, Zaniolo is unavailable and Pellegrini is not at his best. It is possible that El Shaarawy will take the captain’s place if he does not arrive, or play on the left instead of Zalewski who will deviate to the right.
