Allegri hails crucial win for AC Milan

Italy,Sports, Wed, 11 Apr 2012 IANS

Rome, April 11 (IANS) AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri said his side would have been dropped out of the Serie A football title race if they had not beaten Chievo.

 

Milan picked up one point from the previous two games and lost the Serie A leadership to Juventus, but temporarily have it back after the 1-0 victory over Chievo Tuesday.

 

"It was an extremely important game. We didn't play well, but if we didn't win then we could definitively drop out of the Scudetto race," Allegri was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

 

"We brought home a crucial result despite missing so many players. We had to field a 19-year-old and we saw Rodney Strasser, Gennaro Gattuso and Mario Yepes make their comeback.

 

"The criticism of Milan has been excessive," continued Allegri.

 

"Everyone was waiting for us to fall, but fortunately we got back up again. Even when we were four points ahead there was a media campaign against us, as everybody was calling for our defeat.

 

"This evening the lads were able to keep the Scudetto race alive. Some had already performed our funeral, but we're not dead yet," he said.
