Pato: Corinthians supporters are the best in Brazil
New signing Alexandre Pato says Corinthians supporters are the best in Brazil after joining from AC Milan in a €15m deal.
Pato arrives in Brazil after five years with the Serie A giants which ended in ingominy after a series of injuries.
"I'm very happy to have returned to Brazil to join Corinthians. I chose the club for its structure, which is phenomenal, the fans who are the best in Brazil," he told the press.
"It is similar to Milan, the only difference is that the equipment here is newer, but, both clubs are great.
"Everyone has been great. They have welcomed me with great affection and open arms. Everyone here, the players and the club, are all doing the best for Corinthians."
The 23-year-old is still recovering from an existing problem picked up prior to his move, though he is hoping to make a return sooner rather than later.
"I do not want to make a prediction as to when I'll be fit again. I am working and improving every day and I am happy with my work. Soon I intend to be playing," he continued.
"I hope my debut is amazing. In the meantime I will be supporting the team as much as possible. When on the field, I will try and win the affection of the club's faithful."
