Allegri: 'Will Juve error be decisive?'

Massimiliano Allegri keeps thinking about that phantom goal and criticises the Juventus complaints. “I hope it won’t prove to be decisive for the Scudetto.”

Milan were 1-0 up in the head-to-head at San Siro when Sulley Muntari had the ball over the line, but the officials did not spot it. The match ended 1-1.

“It was a bad decision and that’s part of the sport. In these cases you should intervene with technology, or extra officials on the line.”

However, Allegri also criticised the Bianconeri for their decision to call a media silence and put together a dossier of refereeing errors against them this season.

“For offsides, it might be too difficult to evaluate with technology. Muntari’s situation was very clear and despite that it was not easy for them to evaluate it, while Juve are still discussing whether or not Simone Pepe was actually offside.

“After games we should hear more about technique and tactics, less about referees and linesmen. As far as we are concerned, there is no tension, but many put together dossiers and nobody highlights the decisions that went in their favour.

“We certainly suffered with that Muntari incident in a big game and I hope it won’t prove to be decisive for the Scudetto.”

The Milan Coach also revealed he hopes to have Antonio Cassano back before the end of the season, so he can make a rapid recovery from a stroke and surgery to correct a congenital heart defect.

“He was going through the best year of his career in physical and technical terms. We hope to have Cassano ready to give to Cesare Prandelli for Euro 2012.”
