Inzaghi makes dedications after special AC Milan night

AC Milan's two-goal hero Pippo Inzaghi was happy to claim another record after their draw with Real Madrid.

The brace allowed Inzaghi to overcome Marco Van Basten's record, reaching 145 goals in a Milan jersey.

"Overtaking Van Basten's record and we all know what he did for Milan, so it is an immense honour.

"I want to dedicate this wonderful night, probably the best of my career, to my family, friends and Stefano Borgonovo. I saw him a few days ago and promised I'd celebrate this record with him.

"We were a little disappointed in the locker room, as we thought the victory was under our belts and weren't really under that much pressure at the end."

However, SuperPippo wasn't entirely happy at this brief moment of joy.

"I told the Coach that I feel good and it's tough when I don't get to play for nine games in a row. It's not easy for me to lose my enthusiasm, but at the same time you do experience a real worry when you train hard and don't ever get to let it out."
