Orlando City striker Pato open to returning to AC Milan

Orlando City striker Alexandre Pato is open to returning to AC Milan.

Pato was asked what he'd change after his first spell with the Rossonero.

“I'd ask my parents to remain with me in Milan," the Brazilian striker told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The club gave me all they could, I love Milan, but I was alone in difficult moments. I was very young when I arrived. My parents spent some time with me, but then they returned to Brazil. Had they been with me, I would have received more support."

Pato was asked about a return to Milan.

“I feel well in Orlando and I have a contract here, but Maldini knows that I am ready [to return]," said Pato.

“I am more mature, I have a different attitude towards football and I could be more useful for young players.

“I miss Italy and the Italians. I always tell my wife: 'One day, I'll bring you to Italy and you'll understand what I am talking about.'

"To me, Milano was a fundamental city. I've learned many things and I miss everything about Milan. I'd like to return to the club. After all, there are many players of a certain age in Serie A."
