AC Milan coach Leonardo is ready to AXE Ronaldinho for their Champions League clash with Olympique Marseille. After their 0-0 draw at Livorno - and Ronaldinho's disappointing performance - Leonardo knows, with morale on a knife-edge, they cannot afford another poor result against Marseille.
It's a massive call by Leonardo, who had been partly appointed coach this season due to his close relationship with Ronaldinho. While his job is not on the lime, Leonardo knows a defeat would deal a devastating psychological blow to his squad.
"If Dinho is training well - and really wants to - he can make a difference for this team," said Leonardo last night.
