AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato credits his great form to coach Leonardo.

Pato has so far scored seven goals after Leonardo gave him the freedom to move across the front line.

“I feel really calm and confident because Leonardo gave me serenity,” explained the youngster. “I do not feel the pressure and this is fundamental for me. I have also learnt a lot.

“When I first came it wasn't easy since I didn't speak the language properly. I was worried about making errors.

“Maybe Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is suffering the same kind of problems. But I am confident he will be very important for us.”
