Acerbi hails Pato, Cavani

By Football News



AC Milan's Francesco Acerbi feels his team-mate Alexandre Pato and Napoli striker Edinson Cavani are the finest attacking talents in Serie A.

Cavani has netted an impressive eight goals in 10 league appearances this term, and while Brazilian Pato is yet to score since returning from injury, the 24-year-old has been impressed by his ability.

"Cavani and Pato are the best strikers around in the league in my opinion," Acerbi told Milan Channel ahead of this weekend's match between the two sides at the San Paolo.

"Cavani deserves all the praise he has received this season when you look at the goals he has scored. He is only human, though, and we can stop him.

"Pato has absolutely no reason to be envious of him."
