Pazzini: 'Milan need consistency'

Giampaolo Pazzini scored a Milan hat-trick and returned to the Italy side, but now warns “we need to be consistent.”

The former Inter striker netted a treble in his first start for the Rossoneri and featured as a substitute in Italy’s World Cup qualifiers this week, earning his first international cap since February.

“I am very happy. The hat-trick against Bologna meant a lot to me and then the Nazionale call arrived,” he told Milan Channel.

“I had a small problem, as my knee was a little swollen and I had to rest for a few days, but I have recovered and am now fine.

“Milan must always aim to win and we need to be consistent to achieve great results. On Saturday we’re facing Atalanta and have to give 100 per cent.

“If I score another goal, then of course that’ll be even better, but the important thing is that we get the three points.”
