Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni admits it's been a tough first six months at AC Milan for Keisuke Honda.
Zaccheroni, himself, is a former Milan coach.
âArriving at Milan at that moment during the League and with a change in the Coach would not have been ideal for anyone,â Zaccheroni said.
âBut I know what sort of guy Keisuke is. Over these years he has given us a lot.
âKnowing him, I think he can grow during this World Cup.â
