After Arsenal loss, AC Milan attempts to regroup

ANDREW DAMPF AP Sports Writer Published:

ROME (AP) -- Zlatan Ibrahimovic is raging with anger following AC Milan's 3-0 defeat by Arsenal in the Champions League -- and club vice president Adriano Galliani says that's a good thing.

Having won the opening leg 4-0, Milan still advanced despite its poor performance in London on Tuesday but Ibrahimovic ranted to Swedish media after the match that the result was "unacceptable," adding that he was used in the wrong position.

Galliani says that "the more mad Ibrahimovic is the better things go," and the club is expecting a far better performance in against lowly Lecce in Serie A on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Juventus will be without its three top center backs for a visit to Genoa.

With 12 rounds remaining, defending champion Milan holds a two-point lead over Juve at the top of Serie A.
