Leonardo redesigns Ronaldinho

Source: Football Italia

New Milan Coach Leonardo has made getting Ronaldinho ready for next season his primary objective since taking over at San Siro.

The 29-year-old former two-time World Player of the Year endured a difficult first season in Rossonero.

He scored 10 goals, but rarely featured in the first team after Christmas, making most of his appearances from the bench.

Now Kaka has left for Real Madrid, Ronaldinho looks set to become the focal point of the Milan attack.

The former Barcelona star has apparently been told he has to prove himself next season.

He will not receive any favours and looks set to be treated like everybody else in the group.

The technical staff at Milan would like to improve his quickness.

Ronaldinho was famous at Barcelona for his speedy runs into the opposition penalty area.

The Rossoneri want him to get that back and have drawn up a special training scheme to make sure that happens.

However, a lot will depend on the amount of work Ronaldinho is willing to put into the programme.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Leonardo intends to line up Milan in a 4-3-3 formation.

He would like Ronaldinho to play up front on the left-hand side of the trident where he was once so effective for Barcelona.

The Brazilian will have to improve his fitness levels if he is to make the role his own and will not be allowed to switch off as he has done in the last 18 months.

Having said that, Ronaldinho will not be asked to track back all the time, as Leonardo wants to keep him fresh so he is devastating in the final third.

Finally, Leonardo also wants to work on Ronaldinho psychologically.

He feels Ronaldinho hasn't believed in himself since 2006 and needs to rediscover his passion for football.
