Seedorf positive about Milan

New Milan Coach Clarence Seedorf is pleased with the attitude shown by his team since he returned to San Siro a fortnight ago.

The Rossoneri have won both League games they have played under the guidance of the Dutchman and Seedorf expressed his hope that this would just be the start of a long journey for him and the club.

“It’s important to take it day by day,” he told journalists gathered at his pre-match Press conference ahead of the home match with Torino.

“I see enthusiasm and a willingness in the team to learn and improve. All the ingredients are there to be able to grow and improve.

“We now need to find a consistency in both our results and our play. Tomorrow it will be nice to get back to San Siro in front of our fans, who have always supported us even through times of difficulty.”

Milan’s recent revival has taken them up into the top half of the table but Seedorf anticipates a close game against a Torino side who have been in fine form of late.

“We have analysed their team and we are trying to prepare how best to deal with what they have to offer,” he commented.

“We’re also working on our strengths, then we’ll just see which team plays better.

“I’ve always liked [Giampiero] Ventura’s teams, they always have lots of possession. They are having a great season.

“Torino are a very pragmatic team so we need to have a very clear idea of what we want to do in the game.”
