AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato to return in three weeks
AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato has revealed that he will return to first-team action after the international break in mid-October.
The 23-year-old, who helped Brazil win silver at the Olympic Games earlier this summer, sustained an adductor injury during pre-season and has yet to make his first official appearance for the Rossoneri in the 2012-13 campaign.
AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri informed reporters on Saturday that Pato could make his comeback against Inter Milan next Sunday, but the player himself has now indicated that he will return to the field against Lazio on the 20th October.
''I am ready! I just finished training and will be back after the break for international duty!'' the Brazilian posted on Instagram.
