AC Milan chief Adrian Galliani held showdown talks with Ronaldinho yesterday over reports in Brazil of partying. Agencia Estado says Ronie and several Brazil teammates partied after their 0-0 draw with Bolivia through until lunchtime the next day. Days later, Ronaldinho was hooked by Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti at halftime of their 2-0 defeat to Genoa.

Ronaldinho spoke with Galliani yesterday, insisting the reports were wrong. The former Ballon d'Or winner said he attended the celebration, but left at 2am and was in bed asleep by 2:30am.
