Pato claims that he will remain faithful to Milan...Milan striker Alexandre Pato has dismissed any notions that he would be willing to move to city-rivals Inter in the future like his former Rossoneri coach Leonardo.
Leonardo joined Inter on Christmas Eve despite spending a large chunk of his career with the Diavoli and Pato claims that he would never switch allegiances.
“This is a profession, Leonardo made a decision and we respect that," the 21-year-old told Sky Sport Italia.
“I just want to win with this jersey, which I will wear as long as the club wants me to. Would I go to Inter? No, never. I only want Milan.
“Inter are always Inter, a strong side that won everything last season, but as I have already said we must focus on our own targets. I am convinced we will do well.”
Pato went on to praise coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has proven his critics wrong so far at Milan.
“The coach deserves to be at Milan, as he is a great manager and we are all happy. He talks to everybody and helps them all out.
"Allegri knows how to motivate the players, even those who have already won everything. We are united and a real team. We want to win for him. I do what he asks me to, which is to sacrifice myself to help the side.”
Pato concluded by speaking about the departure of Ronaldinho to Flamengo.
“We will miss his personality and his smile, not forgetting on the pitch he is among the best in the world.
“He went home for the Selecao and I hope to play alongside him for Brazil.”
