Giampaolo Pazzini was delighted to end his eight-game goal drought in Serie A, as AC Milan recorded a comprehensive 5-1 win over Chievo.

Pazzini netted for the first time in the league since September 1, and former Inter Milan striker said he relished the change of shape that coach Massimiliano Allegri introduced against Eugenio Corini’s side.

“I’m glad (to finally have scored), and I hope it is the first of many to come,” Pazzini told Corriere dello Sport.

“It had been a long time, too long perhaps.

“I wanted to repay the fans for their affections, and a goal is the perfect way to do that. The change to a 4-2-3-1 formation is important for me, because it means that I am not that far from goal.”

The result leaves Milan seventh on the table, with 14 points from their first 11 games of the campaign.
