Zapata: 'My goal at last!'

Cristian Zapata finally got his first goal for Milan and hailed “a great victory” at Celtic Park.

The defender thought he had netted in the first match with Celtic, but that was credited as an own goal by UEFA.

There were no doubts over his goal this evening, as he tapped in a corner during the 3-0 victory.

“I am happy to have scored today, it was a great victory and I think we deserved it. We came here to play our game and to win,” Zapata told Sky Sport Italia.

“Now we have Ajax at home and will do everything to win that too.”

The Rossoneri had been without a win in over a month and threatened by their own fans on Saturday, so this result was sorely needed.

“The last few days have been difficult, but we gave a response and hope we can do the same in Serie A.”
