AC Milan coach Max Allegri heaped praise on Giampaolo Pazzini after his brace in victory over Catania.

The Rossoneri fought back twice to beat Catania 4-2 and stay in front of Fiorentina in third place.

"I am happy with the performance, as we played well and with a little more sharpness in the first half could've put the game on a different level," said the Coach.

"Pazzini is an extraordinary player, as he moves so well in the penalty area and is a real 'fox in the box.' I'm very happy with his brace, but the whole team played well tonight."
