Pato surprised being overlooked for AC Milan captaincy
Pato expected to take the armband as he was the most senior player inside the locker room.
"The truth was, until I arrived in the changing room, I was convinced that the rule of seniority would see Milan assign the band to me," he said.
"It did not turn out so, but I was not disappointed because in the end it ended up on the arm of a friend and a teammate.
"I did not [ask for an explanation], these are the decisions of [Adriano] Galliani and Allegri."
