Van Nistelrooy, who had been rehabilitating for weeks in Geldrop in order to make be fit and make an appearance in the AC Milan clash, could not make his mark. Just like in Manchester, his side slipped to a 1-0 defeat. Hernan Crespo executed the sentence by heading home the only goal of the match from a corner. Van Nistelrooy earned a few slim chances, but he lacked sharpness and his finishing was not clinical. "This is very a disappointing result. We must improve on some aspects of the game. We haven’t made enough progress, but we’re not far off and I think we can build on this", explained Van Nistelrooy.
