Milan, November 13 - AC Milan on Tuesday said media reports that fans tried to attack Alexandre Pato following Sunday's 3-1 defeat to Fiorentina were false. The 23-year-old Brazilian forward, who has been dogged by injury problems for most of the last three years, missed a penalty and played badly in the loss at the San Siro. "AC Milan categorically deny news reports regarding attempts to attack and threaten Pato that are said to have taken place after the Milan-Fiorentina match," read a club statement. Many Milan fans are frustrated at the seven-time Italian champions' poor form. Sunday's defeat leaves them in 13th place in Serie A with 14 points from 12 games, 17 points behind leaders Juventus.
