Allegri plays down Milan rift reports

2 September 2012 02:28

Massimiliano Allegri has refuted suggestions of a rift between himself and AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani.

Prior to Milan's 3-1 victory over Bologna the pair had given conflicting statements regarding the club's ambitions this season, with many taking that as a sign of unrest, an assumption Allegri was quick to dismiss.

"There is no problem with Galliani," the Milan coach told Sky Sport Italia.

"Galliani said we had to fight for the title, and my statements weren't very far off when I mentioned third spot."

"It's impossible to quantify a title race. Maybe we'll win, maybe another team could do it as well. I'm confident our team can grow over time nevertheless.

"There has never been any problems with the club; in fact, I would like to thank them for delivering me the signings I wanted in the market."

Indeed, new signing Giampoalo Pazzini opened his scoring account with Milan in style, leading his new side to a 3-1 win with a hat-trick after joining in a swap move from Inter Milan.

"Pazzini came with a big appetite and is working very hard. He's not 100 percent fit yet, but is still a player who was born to score goals, and I hope he will continue along this path," Allegri said.

"(Kevin Prince) Boateng was devastating today, and his performance was decisive for our win."
