AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti was pleased after their 3-1 UEFA Cup win at Heerenveen last night.

"We started well in this round and we dealt with the game in the right spirit, which was not so easy against a team that attacks with many players," said the Rossonero coach.

"The Uefa Cup is certainly now not as interesting, it does not tease the appetite for many, but I had an appetite for it tonight and this has been shown by my players.

"The Uefa Cup is not our primary objective, but in March I'm sure if we're still in the race then it'll become interesting."
