Ronaldinho has revealed that the key to his resurgence in form at AC Milan has been his off-field happiness.
The Brazilian netted an impressive hat-trick in Milan's 4-0 victory over Siena, a result that saw the Rossoneri close the gap on league leaders Inter to three points, with a game in hand and a clash with the reigning champions later this month.
And Ronaldinho, who has now netted six goals in his past three games, admitted his delight at rediscovering the sort of form form that saw him crowned FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004/2005.
"I feel the love and so I am happy," he told Sky Italia. "I step on to the field happy and everything goes smoothly from there.
"I don't know if we will win the Scudetto, but we just need to keep playing well and having fun."
Ronaldinho scored his debut Serie A goal against Inter and will be hoping to find the net again when the two teams meet in next week's Derby della Madonnina, with calls growing louder for him to be included in Brazil's World Cup squad.
