Galliani content with Napoli point

Adriano Galliani is satisfied with Milan’s 1-1 draw with Napoli – even if it has complicated their bid to finish the season in second.

Milan were looking to move to within a point of the second-placed Azzurri last night, but the four-point gap remains intact.

“I’m happy about the result especially after we went down to 10 men,” the Vice-President told Milan Channel.

“It was a tough and complicated game and I’m content with the point. The team were competitive and if we played like this against Fiorentina last week then maybe we would have won that match.

“It was a tough game,” he added. “Napoli are a great team otherwise they wouldn’t be in this position. In three rounds, we were up against fourth, second and now we’ll be up against the top team as well.

“I think that the draw was the right result, we knew that we’d have a tough April and it’s an important point that allows us to stay in third ahead of the next round.

“We’re in a position that a few months ago would have been unthinkable. It’s mid-April and we’re unbeaten in 2013 so we should be happy about that. The team are playing really good football.”

Milan, after a summer of major squad changes, started the season with five defeats in their first eight games.

“We’re a good team and we have had to change 10 of the outfield players. Changing the team in such a complete way, we knew it would take time and we had to be patient.

“Now we’re back to the level of playing one game a week. Regardless of what happens in Turin against Juventus next week, Milan will still be in third place.”
