AC Milan coach Seedorf finds positives from Juventus defeat

Clarence Seedorf was "happy" with AC Milan's performance in defeat to Juventus.

Seedorf maintains Milan's performance against Juventus can only boost confidence, despite losing 2-0.

"This is the result, but I'd say it was a very good performance. We knew that we were facing a great side, but we imposed our tempo on the game and eliminated their strengths as much as possible," the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

"Juve were able to sit back even more in the second half after taking the lead, but I am impressed with the growth of the team.

"I helped the players to find their courage. We said before the game, this was another opportunity to prove to ourselves we are on the right track and can play well against Atletico Madrid, Juventus and a good Sampdoria. That gives us confidence to continue the work.

"The two goals can be read in certain ways and we could've blocked Lichtsteiner's run, while on the second if Emanuelson had closed down then Tevez wouldn't have had so much space. However, when you get a shot like that - and I've had a few of those in my career - you can only sit back and applaud a fantastic goal."
