'Dinho calm about his contract

Milan star Ronaldinho insists he is calm about his future at the club even though his contract is up in the summer.

Adriano Galliani told journalists last night that he is prepared to 'risk' losing the Brazilian by playing a waiting game in negotiations.

Ronaldinho has made no secret of his desire to stay at Milan even amid interest from Flamengo and the LA Galaxy.

He has recently lost his place in Milan's starting XI, but appears committed to winning it back.

Speaking on his return from international duty, Ronaldinho said: "There are many players [at Milan] whose contracts are up, but I am calm and happy here.

"I don't want for anything and I am calm about the contract.

"I am happy to have got back to playing [with Brazil] even if it didn't go how we wanted against Argentina.

"I have not been playing a lot recently. I lack the right rhythm, but now I want to keep playing well with Milan so I can be called up to the Brazil squad again.

"I am also ready to play as a striker for Milan. It's down to what the mister decides. I hope to play against Fiorentina," he concluded.
