Alberto Aquilani has given his verdict on the reported animosity between Alexandre Pato and Massimiliano Allegri.
Earlier this week, Pato was quoted in an interview with Il Corriere dello Sport and Il Corriere della Sera of suggesting there was not enough talking between himself and the Milan Coach.
In turn, there has been strong speculation linking the Brazilian striker with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Aquilani, speaking today at the end of the team’s training session in Dubai where Milan are spending their winter preparations, commented that the incident was not out of the ordinary.
“Everything is normal between Allegri and Pato. These things happen everywhere.
“Because Pato is an important player, everything gets over-exaggerated and amplified.”
