thumbnail Hello,

The Dutchman will be a key player for the Rossoneri in time, assures his Brazilian coach...

Milan coach Leonardo has told La Gazzetta dello Sport that he believes striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will soon be scoring goals for the Rossoneri.

"The formation for tomorrow? I don't know yet, I'll have to wait for the phone call," he said sarcastically, referring to rumours that Milan president Silvio Berlusconi often picks the team.

He then returned to a serious tone, and one person who looks like he will get another chance against Udinese is Huntelaar, despite his initial struggles.

"Huntelaar is used as a central point [of the attack] and moves into the area to finish, but we need certain movements to keep the ball," the Brazilian explained.

"He has paid the price for the little time has has spent with us - he was twice with his national team and missed one match through suspension. These are little things that have kept him a bit off, but I am sure he will adapt quickly to our scheme. He needs to find security and be training with us regularly."

'The Hunter' arrived from Real Madrid this summer, reportedly for €15 million.
