AC Milan boss Ancelotti pleased with Pirlo comeback

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti was satisfied with Andrea Pirlo's comeback in yesterday's 2-2 draw with Torino.

Pirlo made his return seven weeks after suffering a serious calf strain and played for 74 minutes.

"Pirlo had been out for two months, so his performance was splendid, sharp and the team benefited from his invention," said Carletto.

On-loan Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko managed a few minutes at the end as a substitute and Ancelotti added: "Shevchenko has worked very well recently and is ready to give his contribution. There will be more games in the coming period and everyone will get their chance."
