Pazzini starts AC Milan career with hattrick

6:41 pm on 2 September 2012

Italian footballer Giampaolo Pazzini started his AC Milan career in style, scoring a hat-trick in a 3-1 win away to Bologna.

Pazzini was part of the exchange that took AC Milan's coveted striker Antonio Cassano the other way last week - a transfer which angered many of AC Milan's fans.

But a week after starting his new job with a shock home defeat to Sampdoria, the Italy striker took no time in showing where his loyalties now lie by scoring a first-half penalty then producing a superb second-half brace.
