“He is fine and happy, so there is no Pato controversy,” said Allegri. “He is young and has extraordinary quality, so he just needs to learn, much like everyone else.
“Let’s not forget he hasn’t played much due to injury, but still scored eight Serie A and goals and two in the Coppa Italia. He simply requires more concentration and over time the rapport with Ibra will improve.
“Mario Balotelli? I have Pato and will keep hold of him. He’ll do well in the end, like all the others who have suffered injuries.”
