Pato: Like a Fish Out of WaterBy: Ro | September 21st, 2009
The start of the season hasn’t been good to our boy wonder Pato. It hasn’t been good at all. There are reports from La Republica that he spoke back to his senior teammates, which doesn’t bode well…especially if say that person were Gattuso. Take this with a grain of salt though because La Republica is known to cause trouble being that they are a left-winged paper and like take swipes at Milan because of Berlusconi’s politics.
Now I’ve read elsewhere that the only time they think that Pato did make a snarky comment was when Pippo took that shot instead of passing to him when he was wide open…and really who wouldn’t be upset at that?? I was frustrated when I saw that and I’m not even the one playing.
It must be frustrating when you go through a drought period…the blame is put on you. You are the one that didn’t score, you are the one that lost the game because you didn’t score, you this and you that. I’m sure it doesn’t exactly boost your morale. I still think that like some of us Milanisti who are still trying to accept Kaka’s departure, Pato was affected in a big way. His partnership with Kaka was great! They read each other very well…and now he doesn’t have that. He has to start from scratch and reform a relationship with someone else. It must be hard to have to start over like that.
Anyways here’s to hoping that Wednesday’s game goes a little better for our boy wonder than the previous ones this season have treated him.
