Milan: Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf said he was more than happy with the result and the match played by his side on Tuesday evening as they defeated Olympique Marseille 2-1 away from home.
Seedorf hailed, in particular, his team’s spirit, which was a key factor in allowing them to start this Champions League adventure in the best possible way.
“The team played in a positive way and reunite for an important game like this,” commented the evergreen Dutch player.
“Marseille is a good team, they were well placed on the pitch and we saw, especially in the second half, how they put us in more difficulty when they came out at us.”
“To face games like these we need the right courage and today Milan had it. I’m satisfied with the result, both from the team and personal level, because the win always brings the right morale and more conviction to be able to continue in a positive way on this path," concluded Seedorf, who set up both of Pippo Inzaghi`s goals.
The win means that both Milan and Real Madrid are on top of Group C as they target the qualification to the next round.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
