Donati slams Italy ahead of Milan match

MILAN, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Celtic midfielder Massimo Donati has criticised Italian football before next Tuesday's decisive Champions League clash at his former club AC Milan.

Italian Donati scored a stoppage time winner in Celtic's 2-1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday which means the Scottish champions need a point in Group D at already qualified Milan to reach the last 16.

'The simplicity of football in Scotland has won me over. Here there is no jealousy or envy in the dressing room. On and off the pitch everyone is pushing in the same direction. In Italy all these things matter,' Donati told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Donati, who hardly figured in six years at Milan where he was constantly sent on loan, also made a dig at Italian teams' defensive tactics.

'At San Siro a point is enough to qualify but I don't believe we will play for a draw. British teams hate to speculate and do table calculations,' he added.

However, the Scottish footballing diet is something Donati is struggling to understand, even when the menu includes old Italian favourites.

'Lunch is lasagna, eggs, beans, meat drowned in strange sauces. I don't know how they do it. Certainly, I will never be used to cannelloni or fried fish pre-match,' he added.
