Allegri proud of Milan comeback

Under-pressure AC Milan manager feels unlucky that his side couldn't come back to win against Palermo.

AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri was pleased with his side's fightback against Palermo on Tuesday evening, believing the draw was "fully deserved" and that Milan could have even snatched all three points.

Speaking after watching his team salvage a 2-2 draw after going two goals behind in Sicily, the coach explained his tactical switches during a game which marked the first time this season that Milan have salvaged a point after trailing.

He told Sky Italia: "I started out with a 3-5-2, then I introduced Urby Emanuelson and had other substitutions in mind, I didn't want to run too many risks in the first half as we could create dangerous situations with Alexandre Pato.

"This is the first time this season we've been able to fight back to get a result, which has to be a good sign. Despite playing badly in the first half, the penalty could've been avoided. The lads did well after the break and we fully deserved the draw. In fact, we could well have won it."

His opposite number, the newly-appointed Gian Piero Gasperini, instead chose to criticise his own players, stating they "threw away" their own chance of victory.

He said: "We stopped after the second goal. Instead of continuing to attack, we stopped at the edge of our own area without defending or playing. We were too passive and threw away an incredible opportunity. We played so well in the first half and start of the second, so there was the chance to continue thanks to the extra space.

"We should've been more aggressive with the defence and the introduction of Bojan between the lines made things difficult for us. We must understand that games finish at the 95th minute, we have wasted too many matches in the final minutes."
