Allegri: Milan deserved a draw

25 October 2012 02:39

Massimiliano Allegri claimed AC Milan deserved a point after losing 1-0 to Malaga in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Manuel Pellegrini's Malaga side won their third Champions League game in succession to take charge of Group C during their debut campaign in the competition, with Allegri's charges left five points further back in second spot.

Allegri suggested wasteful possession had undermined his side's chances of getting a point he felt they otherwise deserved.

"We threw the ball away a little bit too much when we were attacking," Allegri said.

"We should have kept it more (but) a draw would have been the right result."

"Malaga did not surprise me. They have good players, with good technique."

The defeat leaves Milan's chances of progression in the balance and Allegri fighting for his future at the San Siro following a poor start to the domestic season.

"There is little to talk about, we just have to keep looking for a win," the former Cagliari coach said when asked if he still had the support of vice-president Adriano Galliani.

Malaga coach Manuel Pelegrini disagreed with his opposite number, and felt his team could have won by a bigger margin after dominating.

"The score did not reflect the match," Pellegrini said.

"Milan played with eight defensive players, big players against our small players."

"The way we played is the way I prefer to win."
