After three consecutive victories, Thiago Silva says AC Milan are proving they're a united squad.

Milan have beaten Roma, Real Madrid and Chievo Verona in the last seven days and Brazilian defender Thiago Silva says: "It was a very nice game, the team showed great character. We're starting to grow.

"It's a very important moment for us, a time when we are all very focused. This also appeared yesterday in the match against Chievo. The way we reacted shows how the team is together on and off the field.

"The match was very beautiful, was also crucial for the intervention of Dida, who saved the result.

"The hugs at the end of the game have confirmed that the group is united and that Milan is a great family. The team is really growing and is playing with personality."
