Sassuolo President Giorgio Squinzi reveals Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi “told me Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t understand anything.”
The Serie B leaders look set for promotion to the top flight this summer, though Squinzi is an avowed Rossoneri supporter.
He confirmed to Radio24 that Milan patron Berlusconi often discusses football matters with him in phone calls.
“The President told me Allegri doesn’t understand anything because he leaves Stephan El Shaarawy out of the starting XI,” said Squinzi.
“He thinks Milan are doing well lately because Mario Balotelli is carrying the team on his shoulders. In my view, Allegri is doing very well with the squad at his disposal.”
As a Milan fan, Squinzi has a very specific appointment planned for next season.
“I’d love it if Sassuolo beat Inter at San Siro. I can see it now, Inter 0 – Sassuolo 1!”
