Uppity Pato hands AC Milan new problem

After Ronaldinho, Alexandre Pato is now causing grief for AC Milan management.

After Ronaldinho, Alexandre Pato is now causing grief for AC Milan management.

La Repubblica says Pato's behaviour during yesterday's 1-0 win over Bologna infuriated teammates and management. Pato created problems in defence with loose passing and also spoke back to senior teammates during the tense encounter. Not the actions expected from a 19 year-old, no matter how talented.

Asked about Pato's behaviour, coach Leonardo said: "His instincts are good, but he must learn to communicate in a reasoned manner."

Meanwhile, the Milan boss also revealed he'd spoken with Ronaldinho during the week.

"He is fine and has told me he doesn't want to leave," added the Brazilian.
