Milan one big happy family says Pato

Milan have been on fire since a poor start to the season under Leonardo. The new coach on the block was under threat after losing the first few games. However, his persistance and attacking mentality has helped him turn the season around.

Milan are currently second on the Serie A table and also very close to heading into the Champions League quarter-finals.

The noticeable difference in the squad is that Ronaldinho looks more lively and that Milan are able to find the back of the net more often.

Pato who has been a major contributor has said that they success of the team is due to the group being so close.

“Our secret is the group we have. We are very close. When I arrived at Milan, told me that everything here was a family and now I see that this sentiment is true,” said Pato.

Milan will play FC Zurich on Tuesday in a must win game if they want to advance pass the group stage.
