AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato says he's as good as any player in the world.

Pato missed Brazil's World Cup campaign, but insists he's the equal of the world's best.

He said: "I feel myself on a par with the likes of Wayne Rooney, David Villa, Cesc Fabregas, Wesley Sneijder and Kaka.

"These are all players who want the Ballon d'Or or the Champions League. I am here to work and have a lot of faith in Milan."
