Moratti tells Milan to pipe down

Inter President Massimo Moratti is fed up with Milan complaining about the goal Giampaolo Pazzini scored against Lecce at the weekend.

Milan feel Pazzini used his arm to bring the ball down and that it should have been ruled out, which might have led the game to finish in a 0-0 draw.

Last week, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a potentially match-winning goal disallowed against Bari for using his arm and Milan feel that they are being hard done by.

However, replays showed that the referee was right on both occasions, as Pazzini used his chest, while Ibrahimovic did in fact handle the ball.

"Am I bothered by certain arguments?" Moratti asked. "Let's cut it short. They are not the same incidents.

"Pazzini's arm is behind him and he pushes the ball forward with his chest."

Milan are anxious because Inter have closed the gap at the top to just two points ahead of the Derby della Madonnina, which follows the international break.
