Football: Beckham And Pato In Doubt For Bremen UEFA Cup Outing
Posted February 18, 2009on:
BREMEN, Germany : England star David Beckham and Brazilian youngster Pato are doubtful for AC Milan’s UEFA Cup clash with Werder Bremen here on Wednesday according to coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Beckham picked up a hamstring injury in AC Milan’s 2-1 defeat by city rivals Inter Milan in Sunday’s match while Pato, who scored in the Milan derby, also has a muscle problem.
“It is still not certain whether Beckham or Pato will be able to play,” said Ancelotti.
Should Beckham – who has been impressive for Milan since his loan move from Los Angeles
Galaxy – play it would represent his first appearance in the UEFA Cup for 14 years having played 103 matches for Manchester United and Real Madrid in the Champions League.
