Milan Coach Leonardo To Start Klaas-Jan Huntelaar Against Chievo Verona - Report

Milan coach Leonardo will give under-performing striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar the chance to prove his worth against Chievo Verona on Sunday.

The Dutchman, who joined the Rossoneri from Real Madrid in the summer, has failed to deliver the expected good thus far. He has been a peripheral figure and is yet to score. Having used a successful 4-3-3 against Real Madrid on Wednesday, the coach will deploy the same strategy in Verona.

Puntosport.net claims Huntelaar will start alongside Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato, who was outstanding against Real. The Brazilian ace scored a double and showed some good form.

Gennaro Gattuso has recovered, but he is unlikely to feature. Ignazio Abate is in contention to start following an ankle problem. Massimo Ambrosini is suspended.

Milan's likely XI against Chievo Verona:

Dida; Oddo, Nesta, Thiago Silva, Jankulovski; Flamini, Pirlo, Seedorf; Pato, Huntelaar, Ronaldinho.
