Long lines formed outside the San Siro, as security frisked tifosi and checked their IDs and their bags. In the Stadia Olympico, some fans turned their back and whistled during the one minute silence observed for fallen policeman Filippo Raciti but most were pleased that the Serie A had started. This was the big story. For the Rossonera, the other welcome news was the return of Ronaldo to the city of Milan where he played for 5 years for arch rivals Inter. A few stones heavier and missing a step or two. Ronaldo received a standing ovation when he replaced fellow Brazilian Ricardo Oliveira
Carlo Ancelotti's assessment is that Ronaldo lacks match fitness. At this point Ronaldo will not last but 30-40 minutes of a game. However, he acquitted himself well against Livorno almost scoring a goal.
Inter is running away with the Serie A and is now 11 points clear of second place Roma.
