Pato to return in time for the derby?


ALEXANDRE PATO could make his comeback on October 7, in time for the Derby della Madonnina.

Pato claimed before the season started that this would be his golden year with Milan but he still hasn’t featured for the Rossoneri as he picked up a muscle injury before the Serie A opener and is still injured.

Almost traditionally now, Pato’s return has been postponed as he was expected to return earlier. Giampaolo Pazzini is failing to deliver on a high consistent level and Allegri could use a player like Pato.

El Shaarawy: “I’m repaying Allegri for the faith in me”
Tassotti: “Milan up and running now”

According to today’s La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pato – who was training with the rest of the group in some parts of yesterday’s session – is expected back on October 7, which is the date of the Derby della Madonnina. The Duck would certainly like to forget the first part of 2012 as he spent most of it injured.

Pato played just 18 games for Milan last term, scoring four goals in all competitions. He’s surely hoping this season would be better. Meanwhile, Inter’s Wesley Sneijder is injured and probably out of the derby.

Mr nice guy



Pato milan need you,God will grant you good health and injuries free with the remain season make on time show word what u can do. best of luck pato again inter


During the derby Pato will step on a blade of grass that grew the wrong way and be out for another 6 weeks.




amen pato


his last match in d selecao jessy he showed alot of maturity,strength and hunger for goals which got him two goals in dat same match. I believe in his potential and sumtin tells me he will be given special treatment d coaching and training crew and also d management and players.


confess!I do not hold out much hope for Pato, he let me down too much


He was supposed to be OUR Messi, hopefully he can get through this injury crisis and be the prodigy we all expected 😀

We kinda mis him


Lets just hope they don’t bring him back too early, like they did last year vs. Barcelona. I have a feeling that they’re gonna rush him back just b/c its the derby, since originally i heard he’d be back the game following the int. break. We need Pato this year, so its not worth risking him vs Inter

Don’t play him against inter in the derby, he needs more rest

isaiah shevy frm lasgidi

definately he is picken anoda injury.u can’t just start a player dat has long bin absent from futbal to play a derby match nt possible at all inter dat are vry offensive and defensive at list he shld b evaluated and given some chance to play wit some lesser team or more or less primevera team.bcos wil stil nid him


We should check Allegri’s coaching tactics cos he played with Brazil @ the olypics and even before the olympics and after without being injured and now he came back and got injured in training. He was never injured under ancelloti or Leonardo.

Pato is d present nd d future of milan. Lets all milanistas jointly pray for him to stay injury free. Pato nd Elshaarawy could be what milan need to stake a claim at d champion’s league again. I foresee both of them forming deadliest attack in Europe. Milan till there is no soccer


Luv u comment Guy.U re really on point…Forza Milan..Forza Sansiro Giant..


Wish u speedy recovery #Forza d duck


I wish him a speedy recovery, but if he only has like two or three full training sessions with the team before the derby i don’t know, it will be better to let him rest even though it’s an important game of course. Then the international break will come and he’ll have gained more fitness.
Still wish him the best and hope he can leave his injuries behind!


Don’t put your pato’s basket pls. How is he even gonna get the passes?from boateng? I doubt is sky high dream will come to reality due to our bad midfield ball players and also his inability to have lost pace. Can he hustle for the ball like pharoah? We all saw what pato did when he broke into the team but can he do that again? Am so scared to see him play let alone chase and duel for balls with serie A menace defenders. I hope we’ve gotten him a psychologist,he needs a great dose of that right… Read more »
