Allegri: 'A deserved point'

Massimiliano Allegri believes Milan should be pleased with the “deserved point” away to Cagliari, but refused to comment on President Silvio Berlusconi’s critique.

The Rossoneri went behind to Victor Ibarbo, but snatched a late 1-1 draw thanks to Mario Balotelli’s penalty.

“It was a hard-fought game and in the first half the team held out well, but we conceded that Ibarbo goal right before the break,” said Allegri.

“In the second half we started playing again and after the penalty had chances to win it. Unfortunately we were out of time and weren’t sharp enough.

“We come away from Sardinia with a deserved point against a good Cagliari side.”

For the second game in a row, Balotelli converted a late penalty to give Milan points.

“I never watch spot-kicks… We should’ve been more wide awake on the Ibarbo goal, as we conceded just 40 seconds from half-time.”

This week President Berlusconi reportedly told someone on the election trail that Allegri “doesn’t understand anything,” but the Coach refused to respond.

“I never comment on the President’s words, I never have done and I want to talk about the game.”
