Allegri: 'Nothing to be alarmed about'

Massimiliano Allegri insists there is “nothing to be alarmed about” after Milan were held to a second consecutive draw at Lecce.

“It is only normal that through the course of a season there are moments where you win five to six games in a row and others in which you are punished at the first scoring opportunity,” he said of the 1-1 result.

“There's nothing to be alarmed about. In the first half Lecce never got close to our penalty area.

“It's a shame we dropped two points along the wayside. We didn't create much to begin with, but after the goal we played well and it's unlucky we were unable to finish off the game.

“At the end Lecce changed three men and the marking wasn't very clear for their goal.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored one of the best goals of his career, a spectacular lob from 25 metres.

“We try to make the most of Ibrahimovic and his qualities. He scored a fantastic goal today,” concluded Allegri.
