AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti admits it's been emotional after Kaka rejected a move to Manchester City. "With this decision we have evidence that Milan is a special club," smiled Ancelotti. "This is a family where all are doing well and nobody wants to leave.

"We work with professionalism. We know who we are. We struggle to achieve great goals and we are happy together.

"Our squad is not iron, but steel. And now with this news, the confirmation of Kaka, we will make a strong push to catch up to Inter, reach them and overtake them. Believe me, this is gasoline for the engine!"
