Cassano has quiet Milan debut

Antonio Cassano took to the field for the first time as a Milan player in their 2-1 friendly win against Al-Ahli in Dubai and despite a quiet performance showed enough glimpses of his talent.
Cassano who is yet to be officially presented as a Milan player following his forced move from Sampdoria started the game alongside the returning Alexandre Pato.
The two forwards linked up well however, the lack of match fitness from both the stars was clearly evident. Cassano in particular looked heavy with his first touch but did show inclination to get forward at every chance.
The Rossoneri won the tie 2-1 thanks to goals for Clarence Seedorf and youngster Giacomo Beretta. Robinho who set up the second goal was injured as he clattered into a television camera while trying to control a ball.
The Brazilian suffered two cuts to his knee and his right shin and had to have 10 stitches. This puts his participation against Cagliari on January 6th in to question.
Massimiliano Allegri will have to tinker with his squad a bit in the game as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended while Andrea Pirlo is set to miss out through injury. Kevin Prince Boateng is also a doubt. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
