Montolivo: It was a tough match

Milan midfielder Riccardo Montolivo has praised the goals of Giampaolo Pazzini and Mario Balotelli as his side defeated Genoa.

The Italian strikers gave the Rossoneri a hard-fought win over the Grifone, and the former Fiorentina playmaker has admitted that it was a tough encounter.

“Genoa played with real aggression,” he told Sky Sport Italia, “We were facing a very good team, but we remained calm.

“We did well in attack – Pazzini scored an important goal, and it was nice that Balotelli doubled the lead.”
