AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has again thrown his support behind Juventus counterpart Claudio Ranieri after last night's 1-1 draw.

He said: "I love Italian football, its controversy and paradoxes.

"But what happened to Ranieri recently is certainly not positive, as the judgment of a Coach has to be in the long-term and not based on a couple of games. I consider what Ranieri did at Juventus to be very positive."
