Allegri happy to see AC Milan attacking tactics come off

AC Milan coach Max Allegri was pleased to see his attacking tactics come off in victory over Champions League opponents Celtic.

Kaka and Valter Birsa supported Mario Balotelli in a Christmas Tree formation that seemed to protect the midfield more.

"This is the system we basically used last season, albeit with Stephan El Shaarawy a bit wider. Balotelli did well to understand the right moments in stretching the team out or coming back towards the midfield," said Allegri.

"Having a player in the side who can take great corners is a real advantage. Some people acted as if Birsa didn't belong at Milan, but he is a talented lad who works hard and is proving very useful."
