âIt was a difficult game, but we had that winning moment and held out to the end. That is what we had to do,â commented the Coach.
The jeers were particularly loud in the final minutes when Pippo Inzaghi was replaced by Massimo Ambrosini.
âIf they were aimed at Inzaghi then those insults were wrong, because he played well. If they were aimed at me, then itâs a shame, as I had no other strikers at my disposal.
âPerhaps these jeers are a sign they are getting a little fed up with me and they react the same way to [Clarence] Seedorf.
âWhen you see the same face for many years, you need a little more patience. As for me, my rapport with the club is the same it was seven years ago with unblemished affection and respect.â
Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi criticised the players last week after they gave up a lead to draw 1-1 with UEFA Cup opponents Werder Bremen.
And Ancelotti conceded: âIt irritates me too when Milan are in the lead and get caught out. Itâs only normal that the President would say such things, I see nothing unusual in that.
âMy relationship with the President is always blown up by the media, but in truth it is a very different discussion to the one painted in the papers.â
