AC Milan coach Rino Gattuso was happy with a quiet winter market.
Gabriel Paletta's contract was terminated last week.
Gattuso said: “I didn't want any new buys because I firmly believe in this squad. The club asked if I needed anything, but I always said we were fine as we were.
“I know my ideas and the hard work of my staff. I keep my feet on the ground and try not to read too much that is said about me, because I know there's a long way to go.
“We mustn't forget what people were saying about us only six weeks ago, otherwise we'll regress. We're not Brad Pitt now, we've got to continue being as ugly as me and my beard, with dark circles under our eyes.
“I hear talk of a Champions League place, but we're not even in the Europa League spots now."
