AC Milan powerbrokers are banking on Ronaldinho confirming his return to form in this weekend's derby. Ronaldinho's superb display against Siena has Milan chiefs excited about a return to his best for the former World Player of the Year.

The straight-talking Rino Gattuso said of the Brazilian: "He's going all right, good, good."

Two-goal hero Alexandre Pato declared "Ronaldinho is No1", while Milan defender Thiago Silva also said: "He has recovered to a healthy weight."

Meanwhile, Milan coach Leonardo is hoping Ronie sticks to his diet and said: "I do not want to be a policeman. In his spare time, Ronaldinho can do whatever he wants."

And everyone at Milan are hoping Ronie gets the message and doesn't stray before the derby against Inter.
