ADRIANO GALLIANI believes Juventus can slip up as well and claims the Scudetto race is open.
Milan lost the first place in Serie A on Saturday after a defeat to Fiorentina at Stadio San Siro, which was followed by a Juventus win in Sicily against Palermo. The Old Lady are now +1 from Milan in the standings.
Everything is now in Juventus’ hands but with seven matches left to play and therefore 21 points to win, Milan vice President Adriano Galliani believes the race is far from closed and defends Coach Max Allegri.
“We must not give up,” Galliani told Sky Sport 24 on Sunday. “When you read the papers it seems that we are in the relegation zone, but we’ve been doing well in the past two years. The thing that happened to us against Fiorentina can happen to Juventus. We paid for the hard work we put in games against Barcelona.
“Allegri? I do not understand why they put him in question after a minor misstep, we are calm. We’re just a point below, everything is still open. We’ve done better than any other team in the last two years.”
Maxi Lopez got the highest rating among the Milan players from La Gazzetta dello Sport (6.5). Maxi was signed instead of Carlos Tevez: “Tevez? I have no regrets about the January market,” Galliani concluded.
