Galliani: “Everything is still open”


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.

Highlights: Milan 1-2 Fiorentina

“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.

I rememba when we had kaka.the problem is since kaka left we”ve not found even an average player to replace him.we need a technically gïfted trequartista who can actually take on defenders & has good passing ability and the that comes to mind is lucas moura or sporting’s fernandez(it will be easier cause his team is not doing quite well in the league)


I know the mgt will break our heart with their bad transfer policy. If they don’t change it milan will never win the cl again. Look at the teams in the semi-final,they all spent some money n they have progressed to that level. Football is all about investment. Smaller teams are even buying quality players to win trophies. The mgt shd be a little serious with this team cos milan is becoming underdog in the European competitions. For christ sake we are milan not siena. Anytime we want to buy a world class player the mgt will play around it… Read more »


Milan won’t win the scudetto. Firing Allegri would be a big mistake. Allegri is the best coach I know. Galliani should look at wats happening to Inter and understand dat changing coaches kills the team. And with Allegri’s squad, winning the scudetto in his first year means he’s wonderful


I like Allegri,but lets not kid ourselve his a good coach not amazing. Im sorry but for example Fergi or Mourinho would have got the best out of our squad,which I think it goes down to his man management,his tactics are spot on most of the time.


U guys talk like kids especially @macho blake, Allegri is a very gud coach in his first season he won d leauge and super cup, unlucky against Tott’ham and lost in the semi’s of the italian cup. This man is the best we can think of, i am sure u dont knw better than the Italian FA for naming him the best coach and Sir Alex confirmed he is good.


my ideal Milan for next season without spending an absolute fortune would be 4-3-3




G.Rossi——–Pato————–El Shaarawy—

Signing Rossi, Sahin and Ogbonna I think would come to about 40m euros, Keita is free.


Agree on formation, although more probable players would be Astori instead of Ogbonna, and Montolivo instead of Sahin… Rossi could come if Robinho goes (i hope so). Urby definetly needs to play at LB, Merkel needs to stay (i read he’ll be sacrificed for Shaarawy but pray not)


yeh I’d be cool with Astori, I think Montolivo is by no means bad but quite overrated


Our transfer policy shd be changed or else we will always be disappointed.


I heard milan are interested in standard liege goalkeeper sinan bolat but if milan really want a goalkeeper they should sign OCHOA frm Ac ajjaco or MIGNOLET from sunderland.
