Brazil superstar midfielder Ronaldinho has vowed to lessen the impact of Kaka’s departure by having a “great season” for his club AC Milan.
The Brazilian playmaker was responding to quotes from club owner Silvio Berlusconi over the weekend that called him a “great champion”.
It is believed that many fans were dismayed at Kaka’s high-profile departure to Real Madrid but Ronaldinho is vowing to step up his efforts for the Rossoneri and help mount a serious challenge for the Scudetto.
After Milan’s comfortable pre-season victory over local side Varese the player said that he wants to have a great season for Ac Milan and he dedicates his efforts to the club president.
He also said that he wants to guarantee the fans that he has the right mentality to become a great champion once again even though Ronaldinho had an indifferent campaign last year, making just 16 starts and suffering a slump in form after the Christmas period.
As the club rebuild after coach Carlo Ancelotti’s departure, Ronaldinho has also urged the club to sign Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano saying that it would be a great addition to the club and that he is a great player and we could form a wonderful trio along with striker Alexandre Pato.
