AC Milan boss Allegri axing Pato to bench

AC Milan boss Max Allegri admits he could axe Alexandre Pato to the bench for today's clash with Cesena.

Antonio Cassano could well partner Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho again, leaving Pato on the bench.

"Pato has to stay calm. This season he is playing in a different way, plus he was out injured for a long time," explained Allegri.

"Cassano may be a little bit behind in terms of match fitness, but he has already shown his talent and is an excellent buy. Pato finishes off moves, while Cassano tends to put others in the position to score.

"Cassano can change a game. We have signed an extraordinary player and he has to keep on working hard."
