Milan’s coordinator for health Jean-Pierre Meersseman confirmed that Brazilian striker Pato will be out for rest of the season due to muscle injury.
“Pato’s season is over. We are back to square one again,” Meersseman said to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Pato has made only 11 appearance this season. Star striker had just returned to squad from long tern injury before the champions league’s second leg match against Barcelona. He started the match from bench and again came off the field after playing 14minutes only. Now Pato will be having another MRI in two weeks time according to Ac Milan’s official website.
According to Meersseman ”AC Milan wishes to communicate that Alexandre Pato underwent medical scans today at the Galeazzi Orthopedic Institute in Milan. The scans revealed a muscular lesion in his left thigh. Between 10-15 days from today, the player will undergo more medical tests.”
