    Post by RefreSh on Sat Jan 10, 2009 3:26 pm

    The young Brazilian is confident that his side will be at their best this weekend against Roma.

    The Serie A resumes this weekend, and undoubtedly the match of the opening round of 2009 sees Milan travel to Rome to face the Giallorossi, in what is certain to be an intriguing contest.

    The Rossoneri are third in the league at present, and can ill afford to drop any points in this clash, if they wish to keep up with Inter and Juventus, who are both ahead of them in the standings.

    In the lead up to the big match, the club’s young Brazilian striker, Alexandre Pato, has given his thoughts on the pulsating fixture.

    “It will be a beautiful match between two great teams,” Pato said in an interview with Sky.

    “We were happy with 2008, and we are hungry for more this year, and that starts this weekend against Roma.

    “We are determined to do well and we will continue to give our all in every match we play,” he added.

    The 19-year-old striker concluded the interview by making a comment on the club’s new arrival David Beckham, a player whomo he has great admiration for.

    “Beckham’s arrival has been great for the club, and as I have seen him train and play, I can tell that he is very strong, not only on the field, but also off it.

    “For me it is a great pleasure to train with him and with all of my team mates.

    “I am happy to be here. It's great, we are strong, and I look forward to my future in Milan,” he concluded.

    Roma and Milan do battle at the Olimpico this Sunday, with play getting underway at 20:30 CET.
