AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf says Keisuke Honda must be eased into Serie A football.

Honda made a rare start in defeat to Udinese, but again struggled to make an impact.

"He must give himself the patience to get to know Italian football. I am convinced he can do very well cutting in from the right. It's never easy when there are too many expectations, so I think the thing he needs the most is time."
