AC Milan Leonardo ponders Pato's readiness

AC Milan chief Leonardo admits he's keeping a close eye on Internacional de Porto Alegre starlet Alexandre Pato.

"Pato is hardly 17 years old and has played one championship season in Brazil, therefore it's too soon to pass judgment," said Leonardo. "However, he has widely demonstrated to be a promising boy.

"Technically, he does not lack anything: he is strong on the right, the left, quick to make decisions, moves well and is fast. Tactically, he is a pure forward and in Italy can also play just off the striker.

"Now, he faces the most difficult moment, can he make the jump to the big league? But he has all the qualities in order to do so successfully."
