AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri says Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexandre Pato can play together.

Even as Ibrahimovic is second in the Capocannoniere charts with 12 strikes to his name, Pato's run of one goal in 10 League appearances has Allegri taking questions on the duo's compatibility.

"There is no problem between Ibrahimovic and Pato. It is only a matter of finding the best fit. An understanding between them will grow as they play together," Allegri declared to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The boos [Pato] received in the derby have not affected him. Yesterday and today it is clear, I think Pato just needs to find the goal for his confidence."
