Allegri dedicates win to Berlusconi

Max Allegri dedicated Milan's victory to President Silvio Berlusconi on the 25th anniversary of his tenure.

The Rossoneri wore special shirts during today's 2-1 win at Chievo marking the fact Berlusconi took over on February 20, 1986.

“I haven't spoken to Berlusconi yet, but he will be happy about this win, as we are,” said the Coach.

“The lads gave the President a nice gift and a good performance. It wasn't easy to play against Chievo, but we tried our best.

“The first half was a bit of a struggle and we did much better after the break.”

The result means Inter are again five points behind, while Napoli play Catania this evening.

“Was this an answer to the chasing pack? No, we know that to win the Scudetto you have to get results every week and we're all happy. However, we do have to improve our handling of the game when we take the lead.”
