AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has declared Ronaldo will start today's game against Cagliari.

"Finally Ronaldo will be there from the start," said Ancelotti. "Ronaldo has never played a consistent 90 minutes and he never will. He has particular characteristics and those are enough for us.

"He has moments of great genius and creativity, so we are focusing on them. I am convinced that he can do well."
