Pato: Milan doctors to blame

Alexandre Pato has blamed the medical team at Milan for his persistent injuries during his time at the club.

The Brazilian forward was plagued by setbacks in his seven-year career at San Siro, but has since gone on to play more regularly for new club Corinthians.

“My muscle troubles were not down to me,” he told Sport TV. “I had many injuries at Milan.

“I was playing, getting injured, recovering and then going back in to see the physio.

“It is the fault of the doctors who were forcing me to return to the pitch too soon.”
