Zlatan Ibrahimovic was impressed with Milan's 3-2 victory over Bari at the San Nicola on Sunday afternoon.
The Rossoneri moved into second place and now sit just two points behind League leaders Lazio.
"I am very happy because we won," Ibrahimovic said.
"We suffered a little, but the important thing was getting the three points seeing that Inter and Lazio lost.
"Allegri had told us to press high up the pitch because Bari play out from their goalkeeper and defenders.
"We did it and managed to hit back often on the counter attack.
"We are closer to Lazio," he concluded.
