Carrying unfit Pato in Football Manager 2013 – AC Milan

If you’ve given AC Milan a go in FM 13 you’ll know they’re in financial trouble and only have a poultry transfer budget of around £2.5m.

Of course, you can free up a bit of cash by selling players but when you’ve just let go of two of your best players, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, you won’t want to weaken any further.

However, Alexandre Pato, 23, the super talented Brazilian striker, is let’s say, somewhat injury-prone.

He made 19 appearances in total in 2012/13 and scored only four goals whereas my top goalscorer Giampaolo Pazzini made 30 appearances and scored 12 goals.

Robinho actually scored an incredible 19 goals in 34 appearances in the same season from the left wing!

I think this shows the importance of a regular run in the first team, especially for a striker.

Pato won’t get many games though if he’s always injured which he tends to be!

This is why I’m attempting to sell him but no-one seems interested in a player who has only shown glimpses of his potential in my first year and a half at Milan.

Do you have any injury-hit players who you’re struggling to sell? Let me know on Twitter or in the comments section!
