Ronaldinho has denied any rift with AC Milan teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Brazil international was apparently overheard in a local bar questioning the wisdom of playing Ibrahimovic on his own up front.

"In general I don't like to speak after the games when I do play, and especially when I don't play," Ronaldinho told Sky Italia.

Asked if the allegations in La Gazzetta were true, he said: "No. There is nothing to all this.

"I have been here for three years and all the people at Milan know me. I don't allow myself to judge the Coach's decisions and the condition of my teammates.

"There is nothing true in what I read this morning."
