Nigel de Jong hails Filippo Inzaghi impact

Nigel de Jong praises manager Filippo Inzaghi for having a positive effect on AC Milan since taking charge at the San Siro in the summer.

AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong has hailed manager Filippo Inzaghi for having a positive effect on the team since taking charge in the summer.

Milan are in sixth place in the Serie A table following Sunday's 1-1 draw at home to Fiorentina.

With the Rossoneri currently on a five-game unbeaten run in the league, De Jong believes that Inzaghi should take plenty of credit for the side's recent form.

"The coach has done a good job with us, he's always very positive," the Dutchman told the club's official website. "We believe and we never give up, just like our fans. We do this for our fans and for the club, which is very important."

De Jong found the net against Fiorentina on Sunday to make it two goals in seven games for him this season.
