Milan sweat on Pato fitness

Published: Sunday 28 February 2010, 20.17CET
AC Milan are waiting for news on the fitness of striker Pato after the Brazilian international suffered a thigh injury following his two goals in Sunday's 3-1 win over Atalanta BC. "We will see in the next few days," said Milan coach Leonardo, whose team must overturn a 3-2 deficit when they travel to Manchester United FC for their UEFA Champions League first knockout round decider on 10 March. "From the way he stopped we thought it was something very serious, but he had just recovered from a similar injury and maybe he was just worried and scared."
