Made to wait for his bow: AlexandrePato of Chelsea

Alexandre Pato’s lack of action at Chelsea has sparked the creation of a new website poking fun at the club’s winter loan signing.

The former AC Milan striker arrived at Stamford Bridge in January but is incredibly yet to play a single minute of football for the Premier League side.

Guus Hiddink values Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Bertrand Traore above the Brazilian and admitted he was nowhere near fit when he pitched up in London.

Pato was put through a mini pre-season to build up his fitness ahead of his long-awaited Chelsea debut.

But despite Hiddink confirming the player was available for selection last month, the Blues backup striker has still not made his bow.

That makes it 60 days and counting at the time of writing that Pato has gone without making his debut for Chelsea.

You can keep check of his progress via the website, which is humorously registered as hasalexandrepatoplayedforchelsea.com

His next opportunity to get some minutes under his belt comes this weekend when Hiddink’s men travel to relegation favourites Aston Villa.
