"We knew that we had to win tonight to stay close to Milan, then fortunately Amauri broke his duck and made life easier for us," he said of Fiorentina's shock 2-1 win at San Siro.
"We won and leapfrogged the Rossoneri, so now we want to hold on tight. We will already play on Wednesday to stay on top.
"It's a dream and we live it with the dagger between our teeth. My celebration? I was happy for the goal that broke the deadlock in a difficult match. I was not thinking about what happened last week."
