In-form AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari was left satisfied with their 1-1 home draw against Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday night.
Robinho gave Milan a deserved lead after only nine minutes at a packed San Siro, shortly after Sulley Muntari’s strike had been ruled out for offside.
The Brazilian forward linked up impressively with compatriot Kaka, who showed flashes of his old form after a disappointing few seasons at Real Madrid, and steered the ball home from close range.
Messi leveled in the 23rd from a similar range after being left in space by Milan’s rearguard, taking advantage of a mistake by Milan defender Kevin Constant.
The Ghanaian international was satisfied with the performance of his injury-ravaged team.
“We have to continue like this, we have to be humble on the field. The league is long,” Muntari told Milan Channel
“Ricky did well for the team, he played a spectacular game but we all did well. We have to stay on this road.
“Players are coming back we’re growing every day as men. We want to do well and we’ll do great things.
“Robinho thought there was someone behind him, which can happen when you’re tired and not lucid in front of goal. He had a great performance.
The 29-year-old says his collesgues have set their eyes on going past the group phase.
We want to get past the group stages and we’ll fight until the end to do so. We play Parma on Sunday. They’re a tough team to face but we have to look for the in as we want to get high up the table.”
