Milan`s Ronaldinho risks bench again after late night

Milan: AC Milan`s Ronaldinho could face another game on the bench against Fiorentina on Saturday after coach Massimiliano Allegri criticised the Brazilian for leaving a bar at 2am.

"It`s the not the hour for an athlete to still be awake," Allegri, who left Ronaldinho on the bench for last weekend`s Milan derby despite his full recovery from injury, told a news conference on Friday.

The playmaker featured for Brazil in Wednesday`s friendly defeat by Argentina in Qatar and after returning to Milan on Thursday he was videoed outside a bar.

"Milan deal with issues within the club," chief executive Adriano Galliani told reporters. "It`s none of your business," he added when asked if the player would be fined.

However Ronaldinho`s chances of starting on Saturday have been increased by Andrea Pirlo being ruled out with a slight thigh strain.
