AC Milan skipper Ambrosini: Pato must take criticism on-board

AC Milan captain Massimo Ambrosini has urged Alexandre Pato to take on-board criticism coming his way.

Pato was back amongst the goals in Milan's victory at Bari, but has been criticised by coach Max Allegri for not working hard enough off the ball during games.

Ambrosini said: "Pato has significant room for improvement and should be aware that if someone criticises him they do it for his own good.

"He has undoubted qualities and can give so much more."
