AC Milan skipper Massimo Ambrosini has urged Pippo Inzaghi to look on his Champions League omission as an opportunity.

Inzaghi is furious after not being registered for Europe and is already thinking about quitting Milan for Atalanta or Parma.

But midfielder Ambrosini says: "Inzaghi can recover well from this point, he can get to 100% from the physical point of view without the mania of having to return to the Champions League.

"He should exploit this situation, which obviously does not make him happy, to his advantage. Pippo really wants to play, but there is also the season where he can play his part and find his best form, which he will surely do."
