AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato has suffered a new injury setback with the start of their Serie A challenge just four days away.

The Brazil international, 22, was restricted to just 11 league appearances for the runners-up last season due to a succession of leg injuries as he battled to stay off the treatment table

A statement on the club's official website read: "AC Milan can confirm that during training on Wednesday, Alexandre Pato reported a problem with his left adductor muscle.

"There will be further medical examinations in the coming days to determine the extent of the damage."

The Rossoneri begin the new season with the visit of newly-promoted Sampdoria on Sunday.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
