[ITALY]A week earlier, he had two goals. On Sunday, he topped that with a hat trick. AC Milan's Ronaldinho is the hottest player in the world, enjoying his new role in the revamped Milan attack and loving life again.

"I feel loved and I am happy, " he said after Sunday's 4-0 win over Siena. "I go on the field upbeat and because of that everything goes well."

Ronaldinho has thrived since the arrival of David Beckhamon loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Ronaldinho, Beckham and center forward Marco Borriello form the unlikely attacking trio in Milan's 4-3-3 formation.

The Rossoneri have scored 13 goals in three league games since the start of the New Year.

On Sunday, Ronaldinho scored on a penalty kick, flicked home Beckham's corner and hit a rocket.

"It's normal when someone feels the love," said Milan's Brazilian coach, Leonardo. "He's entertaining everyone, he's a great player. He's having a great season, he's rediscovered his taste for playing well and scoring goals. It's a great time in a great title race and it will create interest because we are closer. There will be a lot of expectation and attention and I'm delighted to be a part of that."

The excitement concerns Milan's match on Sunday against leader and city rival Inter Milan.

Milan's win over Siena and Inter's 2-2 tie with Bari cut Inter's lead over Milan to six points.
