Here are the declarations of AC Milan Coach Clarence Seedorf after the Serie A Week 22 game, AC Milan1 – 1 Torino  on Saturday 1 February 2014.

“I saw a team on the rise and
they gave a lot. They looked to score in the first and second halves.
Torino are a good team with a solid game plan and I’m happy with the
players. The team did well to stay calm and stay in the game.
Satisfaction comes from knowing we tried to get all three points. We
haven’t climbed up the table and Italian football is tough for all

“We have to take things game by game. The road is long from here
to the end of the season. The team reacted well, but we need time to
grow. I’m happy with the work that we’re doing. The transfer window is
closed and the players we have are the ones we’ll have until the end of
the season. I chose this system of play looking at the team but time is
needed for the ideas to be absorbed. We have to be patient with Honda as
he’s come all the way from Russia with a different culture and
different game but he played well tonight. The players haven’t been
playing together for that long and with time the understanding on the
pitch will improve. I’m repeating myself, but we can’t make miracles
happen. The players are responding well and we have to move forward with

“The team will be built over time and we have to end this season
in a way that’s worthy of the club. We’ve had some good signals. Rami
did well against Cagliari and again tonight. He has energy, courage and
personality. All the players did well to keep pushing until the end.”

“Muntari is just back from injury and I didn’t want to tire him out.  I
brought on Saponara for Robinho as he had spent a lot of energy and
when I see a drop in energy, then it’s better to make a change. I didn’t
want to risk Taarabt as he’s just arrived. Now we have a week for him
to get to know the team and to settle in”.
