Allegri thanks the referee

Milan are the new Serie A leaders and Massimiliano Allegri concedes “it went well with the referee this time around.”

The Rossoneri beat Palermo 3-1, but were awarded a soft penalty and the Sicilians wanted a spot-kick of their own.

“It went well for us with the referee this time around,” confessed the Coach.

“Looking back at the footage on television monitors, it does look as if Massimo Ambrosini rather let himself fall.

“I have to say that when viewed in the stadium at normal speed, it looked to be a penalty.

“Admittedly the challenge on Mauricio Pinilla could also have been a spot-kick, just as Alexandre Pato and Kevin Prince Boateng might've been considered handling offences.

“Mind you, we had many similar decisions go against us this season, so it all evens out in the end.”
