The 42 year old Italian has made a strong start to the season with AC Milan and the club is thinking that they have made the correct decision to appoint him as their manager.

AC Milan was after the Italian for two years according to their managing director Adriano Gallian, but now they have their man at San Siro.

Since the departure of their former manager Massimiliano Allegri the Rossoneri have lacked durability in their dugout, and in this time Clarence Seedorf, Filippo Inzaghi, Sinisa Mihajlovic and Cristian Brocchi they came to hold the helm of the team but they  did not manage to do something with Rossoneri side.

After the Italian Massimiliano Allegri has gone the Italian giants fails to qualify for the European football, and in this campaign under Motella they are back in the right track.

This Sunday the Rossoneri side beat the league leader Juventus by 1-0, now AC Milan is sitting in the second position just two points away from the leaders.

"We also wanted him two years ago, he is here now and we are happy like this," Galliani told Milan TV .

"We are a flexible team, with a very good manager. We will celebrate knowing that Tuesday we have another tough one [away at Genoa] ahead of us.

"It's all working out perfectly, we can't even see one problem. Compared to the past, people have changed a lot."

The new youngster Manuel Locatelli{only just 18}scored the winner for the home side, and another young Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma saved brilliantly against Khedira to deny him from scoring in the dying moments.

"It's incredible, we won the match thanks to a class of [19]98 and a class of [19]99 player. Donnarumma's save reminded me of [Christian] Abbiati's in the victory against Perugia [that helped win the 1999 Scudetto]," he added.

"What Locatelli is doing is something legendary, he scored a fantastic goal. No one in Europe has a class of '98 and a class of '99 in the starting XI, this means we are working well.
