AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says Ronaldinho deserves to be credited with the winner against Napoli on Sunday.

For now, it's gone down as an own goal to German Denis, but Galliani says: "He scored, a FIFA directive says so. If a shot is on goal and it is deflected in, it is a goal. There are no doubts."

When asked where he thought Milan would end up come May, Galliani replied: "I don't have the faculties of a soothsayer.

"After the first two weeks it was a disaster and Ronaldinho was only a figurine. Now, thanks to him, we have won the derby and the game with Napoli.

"Our problem is the absence of Alessandro Nesta," Galliani revealed. "For me, he is the strongest defender in the world."
