MILAN, March 29 (Xinhua) -- AC Milan head coach Clarence Seedorf credited his side's improval to his new approach following their 3-0 win over Chievo at San Siro on Saturday.
Mario Balotelli opened the scoring before Kaka scored twice to help the Milan side notch up their second consecutive win in the Italian Serie A, which seems to prove their upturn in the wake of four defeats in a row.
Seedorf said he had tried to bring in a new mentality to improve his side.
"From the start I tried to bring balance to the defence, but obviously when a coach arrives with a different mentality it takes time to settle and get the idea. As time goes on, we are more and more able to keep that balance in both phases with 11 players," he said.
"The improvement of the team is thanks to time and the players getting to know each other within this new approach," he said.
"We previously lost games when we played well, such as Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Napoli, when we had nine players suffering from a high temperature, and Parma when we were down to 10 men after five minutes. These are not excuses, but reasons why those games didn't go the way we wanted them to," he added.
