Milan superstar Ronaldinho Gaucho turns 30 today and the perfect gift would be for his team AC Milan to gain the top spot in the Italian Serie A. Ronaldinho who has been in superb form for the Rossoneri this season is very confident that his side can pip arch rivals Inter today to top the league.
Milan play Napoli at the San Siro in a match that could decide who lifts the scudetto in May. With 10 games left to play, Dinho has said that his side will be playing each game like a final.
“Inter have the edge, they have been winning the title for years and are ahead of Milan. They are in front of us in the standings although by little. But Milan are perhaps more motivated. Milan have not the sudetto in a long time. We craveit, we are chasing it, we want it”.
If Milan win the championship this season then they will have Dinho to thank. The Brazilian’s 9 goals and 12 assists – the most by any player this season, have been instrumental in guiding Milan to the second spot. With the sale of play maker Kaka to Real Madrid, Ronaldinho stepped up his game to fill the void left by one of the clubs greats.
Now with the season almost through, Ronaldinho has proved that he still has what it takes to play at the highest level. This match could also be the deciding factor that makes Dunga rethink his stance on including Dinho in his squad for the World Cup finals in South Africa.
A Serie A medal would be another acquisition to Ronaldinho’s already impeccable trophy cabinet.
