Chelsea unfairly slammed in press about January signing Pato

Chelsea have been slammed for their signing of Alexandre Pato in the January transfer window by Telegraph writer Matt Law, but I for one think it makes little sense.

The Brazilian is eager to earn a return to Europe, and turned down a big money move to China in order to pursue his dream.

Chelsea were unwilling to make the move permanent, but agreed to take him on until the end of the term on loan, while paying his lowly £30,000 per week wage.

The Blues also understood that on his arrival, he would need not be ready to play in the first team until he was match fit, having been amidst the pre-season in Brazil.

The writer also slammed the signing simply because he was left on the bench despite Diego Costa being rested this weekend, with Bertrand Traore starting the match, and Loic Remy favoured to replace the young forward from the bench.

Pato himself has already claimed that he is not a central striker, and is favoured more to playing behind the forward or out wide, so Law should simply read up on his facts…

Brazilian was hugely impressive for AC Milan before picking up a series of injuries, and I for one am hopeful he can set the Premier League alight, but he appears to be closing on being ready to appear for the club in the coming weeks.
