Corinthians confident over Alexandre Pato's fitness
Corinthians' medical department are confident that they can resolve Alexandre Pato's injury woes after his transfer from AC Milan.
Pato suffered a series of injuries in Italy and his €15m move to Corinthians has raised fresh concerns over his ability to remain fit.
But club physiotherapist Bruno Mazziotti believes he can get the striker fit and firing, although he warns that it will not be easy.
"It's going to be a minor miracle. He'll need a lot of work to get a long sequence of games," warned the Corinthians physio, who counts Brazil legend Ronaldo among his clients.
"The player is aware that he must work hard to re-introduce a level of excellence. The Duck [Pato] is not a headache for us. All great players deserve a chance for rehabilitation.
"When a player has a history of injuries, you should be cautious. Already we digged a little to find out what happened to him.
"There aren't any obstacles, there are no pre-existing condition that prevents him from playing."
