Allegri: 'Milan still believe'

Massimiliano Allegri says Milan “still believe and always believed” after cutting Juventus’ lead to just one point.

“With five minutes to go, the Scudetto was practically signed, sealed and delivered,” smiled the Coach whose side beat Atalanta 2-0.

“Sunday will be a wonderful evening anyway and we are really fired up for the derby. This fixture gets the players going anyway and perhaps we could not have asked for a better game, as we are highly motivated, certainly more than we were tonight.

“If we do well and Juve slip up again, then we can overtake them. The Scudetto is still in Juve’s hands, but we believe and we always believed.

“The last 15 minutes we felt like we were at the theatre waiting for the finale of an opera, because we knew only a Lecce result in Turin could help. It was difficult to predict, but that’s football!”
