AC Milan star Ronaldinho is confident he can be again the man-of-the-match for this weekend's derby against Inter.

Ronaldinho scored a hat-trick against Siena at the weekend and he has a history of finding the net against Inter.

He told Corriere dello Sport: "I think so. Because I am going through a great moment of form on a personal level. Because Milan are playing well. Because for us, it's an important game.

"I have been important and a protagonist in all the teams in which I have played. But, in actual fact, I feel that I have realised more here in Milan. I am proud of it.

"The relationship that exists between Berlusconi, Galliani and I is such that there is no need of a piece of paper to make a deal. If all goes well, we will go forward [and sign a new contract].

"I wouldn't see anything wrong with finishing my career here in Milan. I hope to be like Maldini, Romario and Favalli. In fact I want to play football for as long as possible because I feel so happy and complete.

"Leo is by friend first of all. We speak the same language in all points of view."
