There are few players who are able to put their money where their mouth is and Ronaldinho is one of them. The Milan star has been out injured for the last 2 weeks and in that time his side has recorded poor performances in both the league and the Champions League.
However, the play maker is set to change that when Los Blancos coming calling today at the San Siro. Reports emerging suggest that Ronaldinho had questioned Allegri’s tactics ahead of tonight’s game but Dinho rubbished them away saying that he is not the kind of player who questions his superiors.
“I have been here three years, I never talk about things like this. When I play I don’t like talking, and when I don’t play I don’t speak,”
“I am well, there is a strong will to do good. I have prepared well for the game and feel good, I am ready to help the team.
“When you play an important competition you always want to do something more to play and do well.
“I need to work hard to prove to the coach that I am well.”
Mourinho will be making his first return to the San Siro since leaving Inter Milan in the summer and what better way for him to mark his return than with a win.
Madrid are on a good streak and it will be hard for Milan to stop them especially with Cristiano Ronaldo on form. Coming off a terrible week, Milan cannot afford to lose this match especially if they want to progress to the knock out stage.
With Dinho back to full fitness, and an attack of Pato Robinho and Ibrahimovic, and the benefit of home adavantage, Milan do have what it takes to beat Madrid.
