AC Milan's Ronaldo doubts Inter's title credentials

"We won't start below Inter in the pecking order," he insisted. "On the contrary, we have the advantage as we have such history and so many great champions in the squad."

Asked about new teammate Alexandre Pato, Ronaldo added: "I think he's ready for Serie A.

"There are no hard and fast rules that state a player can't play here if he doesn't weigh enough or is too young - it's all to do with what he can do with the ball."
