Clarence Seedorf: Hopes Milan have turned the corner

Goals from Philippe Mexes and Mario Balotelli saw the Rossoneri win 2-0 at Fiorentina but, thanks to the four-game winless streak that came before, Seedorf's men remain stranded in 12th place.

But the current dynamic of the league means that positive results against Chievo and Genoa could well see Milan return to the race for a Europa League spot before time runs out.

Speaking to acmilan.com, Seedorf said: "We all showed the desire necessary to help the other guys on the team and that was the best thing we showed today.

"I'm very happy for the group of players for what they did against Lazio (a 1-1 draw) and Fiorentina, two teams that are tough to face.

"Let's hope that this result will be the start of some continuity in terms of results.

"Both teams had chances this evening but we deserved the win for the substance we showed."

Forward Kaka is also feeling optimistic and praised his team-mates for sticking together amid hostile conditions at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

"We had a tough game in Rome and now we got this win here this evening," said the Brazilian.

"The coach asked us to stick together on the pitch and we created this wall in front of our defence so as not to concede a goal.

"We wanted to get back winning ways and now we can think about the good things we've done here and move forward to think about the points we can pick up from here on out."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
