Pato aiming for Corinthians clean sweep

The former AC Milan forward is hoping the club's Campeonato Paulista triumph can act as a springboard for further titles in 2013
Alexandre Pato is confident that Corinthians can pull off a clean sweep of trophies this season.

The reigning Club World Cup champions wrapped up the Campeonato Paulista with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Santos on Sunday, and the former AC Milan striker is hoping the team will adhere to the club's mantra and push on in their remaining quests for silverware.

"Corinthians have a motto and that is: "We never stop". So let's go all out to fight for the Brasileiro, the Brazilian Cup and the Recopa Sudamericana," he told Arena Sport TV.

"Coach Tite has great players and he will assemble the best team. We will fight to the end to claim all those titles."

The 23-year-old, who returned to his native Brazil in January following a six-year spell with with Milan, went on to reveal his delight at collecting a winners medal so early in his Corinthians career.

"The feeling of being a champion is one that every player craves. I'm glad I found this feeling after joining just four months ago," Pato added.

"It was wonderful and I'm celebrating too, but tomorrow we must remember all the hard work which needs to be done to secure the Brasileiro."

Pato could face former Rossoneri team-mate Clarence Seedorf on Sunday when Corinthians host Botafogo in the first matchday of the Brasileiro campaign.
