AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani has laughed off the way the media has turned around to favour them since victory over Siena. "Just a single result can change the opinions of the media. Our spirit has always been good, we readily believe in this team. We did not die first and we are not phenomena now," laughed Galliani.

On the treatment of Alexandre Pato, Galliani added: "I've always said that we need to protect players. If one is constantly being beaten up, then is warned at the slightest reaction, it's not good. But I do not want to trigger a controversy."
