"I have throat pastilles and honey before the game now, so I get to the final whistle with a bit of voice left," croaked the Coach.
"We certainly deserved a goal earlier, but against a side like Milan with stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Antonio Cassano and Urby Emanuelson, they could so easily have pulled something out of the hat.
"It would've been a terrible blow, as we played so well with the right grit, determination and application. I didn't make many substitutions, as I was afraid I'd ruin the perfect balance of the side.
"The important thing is to always think like a team and that was the best lesson from tonight. We know that to win this type of match, we must always put the individual talents to the service of the team.
"We are still studying to be a big team, but tonight's game proved we are on the right track. We have many great players, but this year we need them to become champions."
