Remember Alexandre Pato? He signed for Chelsea over the winter, he’s a Brazilian international… he’s still yet to play a game in the Blue shirt!
It seems a bit crazy now, with the season deep into March and the striker still watching on from the edge of the Londoners’ squad. Pato, who is by no means a bad player, is thought to have fitness issues, but fans have been venting their frustration on Twitter with the 26-year-old having been left out of the squad for today’s FA Cup clash with Everton.
It all seems very odd now with Diego Costa nursing injury issues, while Radamel Falcao remains nowhere to be seen and Loic Remy’s commitment to the club questionable after he came so close to leaving in January.
There’s been plenty of reaction to Pato’s latest exclusion, and here are some of the best tweets…

Seriously, what was the actual point of signing Pato even if it’s only a loan

Chelsea have paid Pato £200k since he joined on loan to become our star mascot.

SOMEONE TELL ME WHERE IS PATO? Do we need to call the missing peoples helpline? #CFC

Did Pato ever move to England?
