Rumours are rife that Milan’s star forward Ronaldinho will be leaving the club at the expiry of his contract next summer. The 30 year old has struggled for playing time under coach Massimiliano Allegri making only a handful of starts mainly coming off the bench for only a couple of minutes.
Allegri now prefers Dinho’s compatriot Robinho who is becoming more of a regular partnering Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack. The latest rumours suggest that Ronaldinho could join Liverpool.
Now, with all due respect to Liverpool, Ronaldinho would have to be insane to leave a giant of a club like Milan to move to an EPL side that is struggling to maintain a mid table league finish.
First of all, the Merseside club have failed to win any worthy silverware since their fluke 2005 Champions League triumph. Second, the English style of play will only further deteriorate Dinho’s game as it lacks the fluidity and agility that the Serie A and La Liga both have.
Moreover, it just does not seem possible that Ronaldinho will join Liverpool. My advise to Milan fans is not to worry about reports that carry no weight whatsoever.
As things stand Dinho is a Milan player. Both club and fans know how important he is to their success and none will want to lose the services of probably the best and most entertaining forward to have graced the football pitch in the 20th century.
Milan owner and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has made it clear on a number of occasions that Ronaldinho will stay with club until he can no longer play football. Being the 3rd highest paid football in the league earning 7.5 million Euros, many believe that he is worth every penny and more.
With pressure mounting on Allegri to play Ronaldinho more often, only time time will tell whether their relationship will reach breaking point like it did when Ancelotti was Milan coach.
