AC Milan boss Ancelotti happy with friendly runout

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed concerns over their friendly defeat to Albania's FK Tirana.

"It was a good training exercise for us," Ancelotti insisted. "I saw some good performances from certain individuals.

"Ronaldinho is getting better all the time and Nesta and Inzaghi also did well.

"Will Nesta play against Sampdoria? We will have to see. As for the injury to Inzaghi, that was just a knock and is nothing serious.

"Was this similar to the friendly defeat against Lugano? No, the will to win was there and there was a kind of rage that made us want to bounce back. We just lacked something in the final third."
