Spalletti said: “It was a great result, but perhaps at the moment we’re lacking something in our ability to hold the ball. We must never allow our opponents to take control of the game and set the tempo.
“Our difficulties were caused by the pressure Milan were putting on us. Let us never forget that there are always two teams on the pitch. We had to suffer at times and the lads rolled up their sleeves to get on with it. After a few hiccups we reacted well.”
