Pato has not recovered in time to face Manchester United tonight as he still feels pain in his right leg. Pato was included in the squad and also travelled with the team to Manchester but the recovery has not gone as planned.
The decision was made between doctors, player and coaching staff. Pato only ran on Tuesday at Old Trafford and was not confident to take the field.
With Pato’s absence, this gives room for David Beckham to take his place.
