LONDON/MILAN, Nov 20 (Reuters) - European shares ended their strongest week in a month on Friday with a benchmark index rising to three-month highs, helped by growing expectations of more ECB stimulus, but gains were capped by stake sales in leading companies.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index rose 0.19 percent to gain more than 3 percent on the week, while the Euro STOXX 50 added 0.1 percent.

Investors said sentiment was helped by a fresh pledge by European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi to act quickly to boost anaemic inflation, highlighting changes to the bank's asset purchase programme and deposit rates as possible tools.
