AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani remains confident crocked striker Ronaldo will take part in this month's Club World Championship.

"We hope to have a fully fit Ronaldo available for the final," said Galliani. "That's our priority."

Meanwhile, Milan teammate Massimo Ambrosini also said: "We can't leave Ronie alone. Although it will be difficult while we're away playing. He needs to have the constant attention of the team doctors."
