Robinho: 'Milan play real football'

Robinho has praised Milan Coach Massimiliano Allegri ahead of Saturday's derby with Inter. “With him you play real football.”

The Brazilian is expected to start this weekend, especially as teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended.

“If I score the decisive goal, then I will dance the samba,” pledged Robinho on Milan Channel.

“This is a crucial moment in which we cannot afford to make a mistake. We just have to win, as it's the only way we can think of conquering the Scudetto.”

The Rossoneri's lead at the top of the table has been cut to just two points, so Inter would be the new leaders with a victory.

Robinho appears to have found his form in Serie A after a difficult spell at Manchester City.

“I like Allegri, as with him you play real football, the kind that I like. We play with the ball to feet, spreading the play down vertical lines quickly.

“Among all the Coaches I have worked with, I'd say Allegri is the best when it comes to the concept of football.

“In terms of my growth as a player, Fabio Capello was very important at Real Madrid. He's a real sergeant with a fist of iron and has no favourites, talking to everyone the same way.”
