AC Milan assistant coach Mauro Tassotti admits all the staff and players were happy for Carlo Ancelotti after their 4-1 victory over Lazio last night.

"We knew that with the tactics of Lazio there would be space on the wings," said Tassotti. "We ran some risk by playing so many attackers, but everyone kept to their jobs."

He added: "The embrace between (Clarence) Seedorf and Ancelotti? It was normal. It was an important victory because he had a lot of pressure on him, perhaps the result was also liberating for all of us after so much pressure ..."
