Pato unsure if Gattuso will stay with AC Milan
The veteran midfielder is weighing up his future at the San Siro after falling off the first team radar.
Asked about his teammate's situation, Pato said: "He's a great person on and off the field. He is an example to all. When he's a hundred percent he will begin to play, I'm here to play with him.
"But the future, I do not know."
