Pato mentor upset with AC Milan expectations

One of Alexandre Pato's former coaches is upset with the expectation building on the AC Milan youngster.

Abel Braga said: "I heard that Pato will score 30 goals in six months and by saying such a thing you don't help the boy to grow.

"He is spoken of as the saviour, the man who can solve all the problems - this is not right.

"Too many responsibilities are a burden on him. In a team it is the group that counts and you shouldn't put all the attention on a single person."
