Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni feels AC Milan will be happy with their deal for CSKA Moscow attacker Keisuke Honda.

Zaccheroni believes playing for Milan in Serie A will "benefit" Honda.

"Honda is not officially a Milan player yet, so I can't technically say anything about that," Zaccheroni told Sky Sport Italia.

"I can only say that the other Japanese players who have played in Italy really benefited from taking part in such a difficult tournament as Serie A."
