Milan legend and icon Franco Baresi was delighted by the response his team showed after their disappointing 7-games-winless run.
Milan held a 3-0 victory over Celtic in Glasgow, lifting their hopes to reach the last 16 in the UEFA Champions League. Goals from Kaka, Cristian Zapata and Mario Balotelli were enough to eliminate Neil Lennon’s side fromthe competition and putting Milan’s hope their hands.
“Yesterday Milan produced a good performance. They responded very well after the disappointing result at the weekend [the 1-1 home draw with Genoa].” Baresi said.
“More effort in Serie A needs to be shown but hopefully this will be a good start – the boys were very good in Glasgow.” The Milan Player of the Century told the reporters.
Milan are in the 2nd place of their group with 8 points, two points behind 1st-place Barcelona. Milan need just to avoid losing to Ajax in a Home match Dec. 11th, to reach the last 16 in UCL.
