Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato picks up an injury in training for AC Milan on Wednesday.

AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato has suffered an injury setback just days before the start of the Serie A season.

The 22-year-old was blighted by persistent injury problems last season, playing just 11 league matches.

Milan confirmed that the forward picked up a knock in training on Wednesday with a statement on their official website.

The statement said: "AC Milan announces that during a game held in today's workout, Pato has reported a problem with his left adductor.

"In the coming days further medical examinations will be made to determine the extent of the damage."

Milan begin their 2012-13 campaign at home to Sampdoria on Sunday, August 26.
