Allegri offering Robinho no guarantees

27 January 2013 20:34

AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has explained why he started M'Baye Niang ahead of Robinho against Atalanta.

Milan won Sunday's match 1-0 courtesy of Stephan El Shaarawy's 15th league goal of the season, but Robinho had to settle for a place on the bench as Allegri started Niang alongside Pazzini and El Shaarawy in attack.

Speaking to reporters after the game, the coach explained his selection.

"I don’t know if Robinho will still be here next season, so for the moment I am choosing M'Baye Niang because he gives me more guarantees," Allegri told reporters.

The Milan coach also praised his side's recent improvement, though, he believes they need to be more clinical when they create chances.

“The team is doing fairly well and this was a good victory in a difficult arena," he continued.

“Atalanta caused us a few problems, but we did well for over an hour and only ran a few risks at the end. We’re a little more organised in the middle and can move the ball better in attack, which means when we play quickly we can do damage.

“The only thing we lacked today was a cool head in front of goal.

"I'm happy that my guys are playing well and are improving as a team. As I've already said, we should keep on working and try to achieve important results. The guys are doing a good job even if it isn't easy. Right now we are holding a good position in the table and we should keep on holding it and try to improve it."

Milan rose to fifth in the table after Sunday's win.
