Pato relishes playing with Cassano

Alexandre Pato has revealed he is looking forward to partnering Antonio Cassano up front for Milan.

The pair are likely to spearhead Milan's attack for the next three games after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's suspension.

"I wanted to play with Antonio for a while and now I can do it," Pato said. "I am happy. I only want to play, with or without Ibrahimovic.

"I can either play as a centre-forward or as a second striker, it depends on the Coach's decision. I want to show my worth.

"Ibrahimovic is fundamental for us. It's a big loss, but we have champions who can play well."
