Alexandre Pato: Wants more regular playing time

Alexandre Pato: Wants more regular playing time

Pato has returned from a long injury lay-off to make seven appearances for Milan so far this season, scoring two UEFA Champions League goals.

Several clubs, including Chelsea, have been linked with the 23-year-old Brazilian, who came off the bench to score the Rossoneri's third goal in their 3-1 victory at Anderlecht in midweek.

Pato has cast doubt over his future at the San Siro, telling Mediaset Premium: "I had said to the coach (Massimiliano Allegri) I would come off the bench and close the game.

"Milan are doing well and Stephan El Shaarawy is doing well, but I want to play. We'll see what to do with my agent."

Pato's agent, Gilmar Veloz, is planning talks with his client and AC Milan next week and was tight-lipped over a potential move.

He told tuttomercatoweb.com: "If he said those things he has his reasons.

"We want to understand and evaluate the situation with AC Milan. For now it would be redundant to say something more.

"On Tuesday I'll arrive in Italy to speak with Alexandre and AC Milan and then evaluate what to do.

"Could he leave Milan? I don't know, we'll talk after Tuesday."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
