The striker is expected back in Milan tomorrow after having treatment on his leg injury in Brazil last week.

Reacting to reports that Milan are seeking to sign a replacement for Ronaldo, Ancelotti said: "The problem for Ronaldo is only temporary and I have not asked for another striker.

"For now, Pippo Inzaghi and Alberto Gilardino are enough for us. In training, Alexandre Pato has astonished us.

"Gilardino played very well in his first year and well enough in the second. He is a slow burner, but everyone has their own times."
