Call it luck or destiny, one thing is for sure Alexandre Pato’s 100th minute winner for AC Milan against Novara in the Coppa Italia yesterday definitely left Milan VP Adriano Galliani red in the face.
After trying to sell Pato against his wishes to French club PSG in order to sign Man City want away striker Carlos Tevez failed, the 67 year old has taken a rather low key approach to the club’s functions in the past couple of days.
I do not blame him though, after making a comment like the one below, i would also take some time out of the spotlight.
“Pato has decided to stay, so Tevez will not come,” Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.
“Those two deals were connected, if one player does not leave, then the other will not come.
So i will say for Pato what i know he would not dare say: In your Face Galliani!
