Galliani: AC Milan's January signings have been great

Despite vocal fan complaints that the Rossoneri did not invest wisely in the winter window, the club chief insists that those who were brought in have been a success.

AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has insisted that the club's January signings have so far been a success.

The Rossoneri sit in the lower half of the Serie A table, level on points with 10th-placed Torino, but just five points off the final Europa League place.

Galliani believes that, despite a difficult campaign, the signings of Adel Taarabt, Adil Rami and Keisuke Honda have boosted the club's performances.

"The atmosphere has improved and wins certainly help," the Rossoneri vice-president told reporters. "The January signings are also doing well, as Honda and Adel Taarabt are bringing great balance to the midfield. Adil Rami is also doing well. Honda is the best player in Asia and we need to have patience with him. I am sure with time he will justify the decision to hand him the No.10 jersey.

"Just 15 days ago everything seemed to be wrong, but after 28 years of experience I have learned that when you lose it's easy to think you'll lose forever, where when you win the thought is that will continue forever. The reality is of course neither of them, as sport goes in cycles. Positive results do everyone good and if we chose Clarence Seedorf it's because we thought he'd be a good coach."

Milan's next clash is at home to Catania as the club looks to salvage some pride in the final six games of the Serie A season.
