Ronaldinho inspires Milan to derby victory

Ronaldinho has silenced his critics by inspiring AC Milan to victory over Jose Mourhino’s Inter last night at the San Siro.

The former Barcelona playmaker was dropped by Brazil coach Dunga earlier this week and was expected to start the Milan derby on the bench. But instead the big toothed trickster was in the starting eleven and got the decisive goal.

Starting with a beautiful deep ball from to Kaka, Ronaldinho then sprinted into the box to get on the end of his compatriots pinpoint cross and head home.

If the Brazilian wizard can recapture some of the form of three years ago and get his fitness back Milan may have got themselves a bargain.
