AC Milan's Pato: Ronaldinho no slacker

The Brazilian superkid said: "Paloschi is great, we already understand eachother, even though we've never played together before.

"I also love playing with (Rino) Gattuso. I watched him on TV at home in Brazil and now I am playing with him. On the field he is a fighter, but in training he is full of jokes."

Pato was asked about Inter Milan's teenage star Mario Balotelli and added: "I've seen Balotelli play. He is very strong, you can see that he wants to entertain the crowd."

On the prospect of Barcelona's Ronaldinho joining the Rossoneri, Pato said: "He is great. I know he is, even if some people say otherwise without knowing him well. A slacker? Who says? He trains in Barcelona, you should check him every day before you judge. And also this year he has been plagued by injuries.

"As a person, finally, he is exceptional - like all the Brazilians that I've met since coming to Europe."
