Goal.com World Player of the Week #67: Ronaldinho
Achievement: Inspiring his side to opening day win
Ronaldinho may not have kept himself in supreme condition over the course of the summer break but the Brazilian was anything but complacent as Milan ripped through Lecce on matchday one of Serie A.
The Rossoneri had too much firepower for their southern opponents with the playmaker Dinho in imperious form.
Following Alexandre Pato's opener, his compatriot took over, setting up the next two goals. He mesmerised the promoted team with his array of tricks, skills and ultimately, his end product. Should he maintain his form throughout the season, then i Diavoli could run their city rivals close for the title.
Congratulations to Ronaldinho, Goal.com's 67th World Player of the Week!
