Having been continuously troubled by injuries over the past three seasons, Ac Milan striker, Alexandre Pato will be receiving another special treatment in a hope to keep the Brazilian away from injuries.
The Rossoneri are sending Pato to professor Frederick Carrick at the Life University of Marietta for medical test along with special consultation to determine the health situation of the 22-years-old.
Pato will be flying on Monday along with chief medical staff, Jean Meersseman and Bruno Dominici, meaning that he should be unavailable for this weekend game against Roma, just as well Milan’s midweek Champions League tie versus Barcelona. The Brazilian striker has been facing muscle problems on his thigh for about three years and this season can be considered as the worse time since he hasn’t been able to play quite a lot of matches compared to previous seasons.
Pato’s concerning injury issues is also what to be rumored as one of the reasons why Milan didn’t seem to mind in letting the player go by accepting Paris St. Germain’s offer which was rejected in the end by the striker. This latest check up could very well determine the Brazilian international’s future with the Rossoneri as should no positive progress reached by the 22-years-old until next summer, the club might finally gave up on keeping him.
Meanwhile, another injury problem hit Milan as their veteran striker, Fillipo Inzaghi, reportedly picked up a thigh strain during the Rossoneri’s Copa Italia game against Juventus on Tuesday. After examination, the medical team confirmed that Inzaghi would have to rest for around 2-3 weeks before being able to play again.
Injury problems have been hitting Milan almost non-stop this season as when someone return there seemed to be another who hits the medical room. However, this difficult situation apparently didn’t stop the Red and Black squad in doing well this season, leading the Serie A, advancing to Champions League quarter final and only losing out after extra time in the Italian Cup semifinal.
