Kevin-Prince Boateng insists there's no reason for panic after AC Milan's thumping by Manchester City.

City thrashed Milan 5-3 in the opening game of the Audi Cup.

"Milan, complete with Montolivo, Balotelli, Abbiati and Zapata can compete with Manchester City. I have always said I am happy to be here and that Milan is my second home.

"I'm happy for El Shaarawy, now he has scored great goals, played well and this is very important for him," said Boateng.
