AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri was delighted with their 4-0 thumping of Palermo.

The Rossoneri dominated at the Stadio Barbera with Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagging a hat-trick.

"We put in a great performance today and the lads did so well right from the start. Ibrahimovic scored three wonderful goals," said the Coach.

"Winning in Palermo was important and I believe this can be a crucial victory. Robinho did very well, creating assists and working for the team.

"Luca Antonini had a slight thigh problem, while Urby Emanuelson sprained his ankle, but it shouldn't be anything serious.

"When we win so comprehensively, we ought to be more careful and try to put the game to sleep, because with certain tricks it's easier to get hurt."
