AC Milan coach Leonardo is delighted with the way he has helped Brazilian pair Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato find their best form.

Pato and Ronaldinho were heavily criticised at the start of the season and are improving radically.

He said: "Ronaldinho looks happy, he tries to do everything he can for the team and that pleases me, as he went through a moment of great difficulty.

"No player can be 100 per cent for 90 minutes in 60 games a season. Pato is always marked very tightly and let's not forget he's only 20 years old, so he's learning on the job."
