Pato Takes Charge

Alexandre Pato is already beginning to leave his mark at AC Milan.

The 18-year-old has played ten games and scored six goals so far this season to help earn the Rossoneri 23 points from a possible 30 available.

In fact, the San Siro giants have garlanded the same number of points over this period as the in-form AS Roma and two more than league leaders Inter.

The teenager's arrival at the club in January mirrors that of Ronaldo's move from Real Madrid at the same time last season.

Then, the 31-year-old scored five goals to fire coach Carlo Ancelotti's side towards a Champions League place.

With Ronaldo's career on hold as he recovers from his recent to repair a ruptured knee ligament and fellow-frontman Filippo Inzaghi sidelined with a hernia, the former Internacional starlet is set to play an even greater role in the chase for a Champions League spot.
