AC Milan coach Cristian Brocchi praised the character of his team after they came from two goals down to draw 3-3 with Frosinone at San Siro. The 40-year-old has won just one of his first four games in charge of the Serie A giants after taking charge in the wake of Sinisa Mihajlovic’s sacking, but was relieved to see his side take a point from a frantic contest. Milan missed a number of chances – including a Mario Balotelli penalty – and required a stoppage-time leveller from substitute Jeremy Menez.
