Dunga not happy with Pato
Pato has come under fire after being replaced by Rafael Sobis against Brazil’s 2-0 win against Cameroon. Dunga who is under a lot of pressure to bring home the gold was fustrated with Pato’s inability to lose his marker. Dunga did not want to take any chances as Brazil were not able to get many chances upfront and he did not want a repeat of the Sydney Olympics where Brazil lost to Cameroon.
“I brought on Rafael Sobis because he knows how to deal with tight marking, can open up the spaces and does not go offside,” Dunga is quoted as saying by Ansa.
“Pato must grow again, and he must learn to free himself from his marker.”
Pato could now be dropped from the first team against Argentina.
