Alexandre Pato, also known as Alexandre Rodrigues da Silva, is a Brazilian professional soccer player, and his career has gone from its metropolitan start to challenge-filled experiences and wins in different clubs and international games.


Childhood & Early Life

Alexandre Pato was born on the September 2, 1989, in Pato Branco, Brazil, and started his soccer skills as a youth player at Internacional. He rose to prominence for his amazing abilities and unique technique. He was still only 16 when he turned professional in 2006 and marked a goal within a minute of his debut against Palmeiras, beginning his journey to greatness.
Globally, he has reached a series of milestones and international success.
His goal-scoring ability (as showcased with Brazil's U20 and U23 teams) resulted in his 2008 full international debut for the senior Brazilian team. He was instrumental in Brazil's win at the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup and played the game in several different global tournaments, such as the 2012 London Olympic Games with his current national team.

But his 63 goals in 150 games for Milan were a testament to his amazing talent and skill on the football field. Even though he suffered setbacks because of constant injuries, his time at Milan belongs to his legacy.


Odyssey: Europe to China to MLS

After his time at Milan, Pato went on a world tour of showcasing his abilities to clubs across the world. His move to China to feature with Tianjin Tianhai, before a return to São Paulo is clear example of how one can manage their career during a difficult patch in soccer such as his.

The way he played the game, his skill level, and the amount of goals he scored has already carved a place for him in the history books. As the career of a boy prodigy evolves into that of a seasoned veteran, the Brazilian's continued love of the game has been evident throughout a journey that has seen him rise, fall, and rise again.


In the End

Starting from his time at Internacional up to his glory on the international stage with the Brazil national team and the impression he made on the club stage, Pato's journey to glory could not have been done more incredibly. His journey serves as an inspiration to footballers around the world as he goes on in the MLS forging his path with Orlando City, proving that sheer perseverance and talent can go a long way in the beautiful game.
