ALEXANDRE PATO suggested he’s unsatisfied with his current role and his agent will speak to the club.
Milan haven’t seen the real Pato in a very long time and even though he has 2 goals (both in the Champs League) this season, he’s still very far from his top form and he’ has been put on the bench a lot this year.
Everyone thought that with Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of the way, Pato will finally shine but he’s being completely outshined by Stephan El Shaarawy, who assisted Pato the goal against Anderlecht yesterday.
“I’m happy that I scored on Wednesday. I had told Allegri that I would score and close the match,” Pato, 23, said after the game in Belgium. “Milan are doing well and El Shaarawy is also doing well. I’m trying my best, but I want to play more. Now my agent will come to Milano, and then we will see what happens.”
Pato’s agent, Gilmar Veloz confirmed that he will meet with the management to see what future holds for Pato who is perhaps also losing his status as fans’ favourite with dull performances and constant injuries.
“If he said certain things then he must have had his reasons,” Gilmar Veloz is quoted as saying on tuttomercatoweb.com. “I want to get a better understanding of the situation with Milan. I’ll arrive in Italy on Tuesday, I’ll speak with Pato and then with the club to evaluate what to do next. I don’t want to really say anything more because I wouldn’t want to say inexact things. I don’t know if he can leave Milan…
“We’ll talk about that again after Tuesday…” he concluded. Milan were very close to selling Pato to Paris Saint-Germain last January but Berlusconi called-off the move and sold Thiago and Ibra in the summer.
