AC Milan coach Max Allegri was delighted with his strikers for victory over Chievo Verona.

Alexandre Pato broke his duck on his first start since that thigh injury, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 101st Serie A goals.

"Ibra's talent needs no comment. It was important that Pato get back to scoring and had a good performance, but the really crucial thing to note is that they were both supported by a solid team that allowed nothing to their opponents.

"Kevin-Prince Boateng was more tired than anyone after Barcelona, so he played with maturity tonight and that's something he needs to improve. He can't always think of playing at 100mph. He has to improve his skills and not rely only on his grit."
