Win was right result, says Allegri

Massimiliano Allegri insists that Milan deserved the win over Napoli – even if he admits the penalty decision was controversial.

The Rossoneri marched to a 3-0 victory after Salvatore Aronica was judged to have handled in the area. Zlatan Ibrahimovic drove home the resulting penalty.

"It looked like a penalty from the sidelines, but there are a few doubts when you see it on the replays," he noted.

"But regardless of the incidents, we played well. We didn't allow Napoli to have one shot on goal and I think our victory is deserved.

"We did very well in the first half, but we made a lot of errors in attack.

"I liked our character though, I'm happy with what the lads did, seeing as the boys played in Napoli's half for 90 minutes."

Allegri was also content for more reasons than just the three points as Kevin-Prince Boateng returned from injury to net the second.

"I'm happy with the win but also because my injured players are coming back to full fitness," he continued. "Some important elements are returning.

"Boateng is the kind of player who can break a game when he comes on, just like Robinho did against Parma when he came on and as Pato did last Sunday."

Allegri was also asked to comment on rumours that Kaka could return to San Siro in the summer seeing as the player's father, who is also his agent, was present at the game tonight.

"The market is closed for now. We just have to concentrate on our objectives which are the League and the Champions League," he responded.

"We can't get distracted and then we'll just have to wait and see what happens in the summer."
