Allegri encouraged by latest Milan win

10 December 2012 10:58

Massimiliano Allegri believes AC Milan's 4-2 win over Torino on Sunday was an important step on their road to Serie A recovery.

Hosts Torino went ahead in the 28th minute, but goals from Robinho, Antonio Nocerino, Giampaolo Pazzini and Stephan El Shaarawy turned the match in Milan's favour.

The win leaves Allegri's team seventh on the table and five points off fourth-placed Roma, who have 29 points.

"It was an important victory, which followed up the previous win. We went behind to a technical error, but we did well to deserve the win," Allegri told Sky Sports Italia.

"We could have done better in the first half where we lacked a bit of speed and did not reach the placement of midfielders.

"We are moving closer to the top six in the standings, and it was important to win today, also considering the result of Roma last night."

Nocerino echoed his coach's sentiments, lauding Milan's response to a lacklustre first half as the Italian giants continue to build momentum in their title pursuit.

"Well, we didn't play that well in the first half, but then we increased the rhythm of play in the second half and managed to score three goals, closing the game completely with a great victory," the midfielder said.

"We played against an excellent team. They're very well organised and made things more difficult for us. It wasn't easy to come here and win, we are happy

there's one more positive result for us."
