AC Milan coach Ancelotti: Gilardino has role to play

Gilardino was dropped for Sunday's victory over Napoli, with Ancelotti going with his new attacking combo of Ronaldo and Alexandre Pato.

But the Milan boss said today: "If Pato and Ronaldo go on like this, Gilardino will play less. But we can not think that Ronie will play in every game.

"Alberto is very young, his age and freshness will certainly be important."
