AC Milan’s extraterrestrial (video)

“There are some extraterrestrials in football and from what I saw yesterday at San Siro, Pato is certainly one of them” said Juventus manager Claudio Ranieri as has described AC Milan youngster Alexandre Pato who made his debut against Napoli recently.

The 18 year old sensation’s debut was long awaited since signing for Milan in the summer from Internacional Porto Alegre. He was ineligible until this month due to Brazilian transfer laws for players under age 18. A media frenzy ensued all over Italy, and he did not disappoint with Italian papers calling his performance electrifying. AC Milan won 5-2 win at the San Siro.

You can see the highlights here:

Pato was showered with praise from all things Milan: Paolo Maldini, Carlo Ancelloti, Leonardo and a host of other former and current players.

The best praise of all comes from me: he actually made Ronaldo look good.
