Berlusconi: Milan lost title

Milan President Silvio Berlusconi believes the 2011-12 Scudetto was lost by his Rossoneri team, but he confirms Coach Max Allegri for next season.

Juventus sealed the League title on Sunday evening after stretching their lead over Allegri’s team to an insurmountable four points with just one game to now play.

However, Berlusconi believes that whilst the Bianconeri deserve credit for their success, it was also assisted by Milan’s shortcomings.

At the end of March, the San Siro outfit commanded a four-point lead over Juve, but saw that dissipate after a run of one win from four games.

“We lost the championship because it was us who threw it to the wind, it’s our fault,” admitted the club’s owner, speaking in Moscow today.

“But Juve have also earned it through perseverance, they were unbeaten and it showed. Truly heartfelt congratulations.

“Allegri? He has a two-year contract, I don’t see why there should be these discussions about him.”
