AC Milan coach Leonardo insists Chelsea targets Pato, Pirlo not for sale

AC Milan coach Leonardo is adamant Chelsea targets Andrea Pirlo and Alexandre Pato will not be sold.

"Pato and Pirlo won't go anywhere, they will stay in Milan. They are both key players for us," explained Leo.

"The players know our club really well. There are always plenty of rumours, especially these days. It will be only once the transfer window ends that the squad will be completed."

The new Rossoneri boss also explained he is expecting a lot from Ronaldinho.

"He is an important resource for us. Dinho needs to take responsibility. This year he wasn't on the same level of his best season back in 2005.

"Ronaldinho is a great talent but sometimes talent on its own is not enough. Anyway Milan does not depend on one player, the club stands for itself and that's it."
