Pato injured during game against Atalanta

Pato scored two goals during the win against Atalanta tonight but had to leave the game at the 80th minute after pulling a muscle. It is still unknown exactly what the injury is but it looked quite bad and he is now likely to miss the Champions League clash against Manchester United.

“We will have to wait 24 to 48 hours before knowing the extent of the injury,” said Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani.

Pato was out for a few months this season due to an adductor injury and coach Leonardo fears that it might be the same problem.

“We have to see what type of injury he’s suffered but it’s true that his last injury was to an adductor so that is a little worry,” coach Leonardo told Sky Italia
