Lecce boss De Canio convinced of survival after drawing with AC Milan

Lecce coach Gigi de Canio says they've shown they can survive in Serie A with their 1-1 draw against AC Milan.

One of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's most spectacular career goals was not enough for Milan, who were pegged back 1-1 at Lecce.

"Our first reaction after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goal was simply to be stunned," revealed the Coach.

"We complimented him on an amazing strike, then got worried and felt regret at going behind.

"We managed to get back on track to take a point off Milan. This is the way we can stay in Serie A.

"We may be battling against relegation, but we're relaxed and the four points against the leading two teams is down to all the work we've done over the last six months.

"I want my side to always play with this mentality and am very satisfied with the character shown by my squad."
