"We have to return to the top of the table even if just for a couple of hours" - Milan boss Allegri

April 21, 2012 By Gregory Sica
According to the Milan tactician the Rossoneri have no choice but to rack up the three points against Bologna to remain hot on Juve's heels.
Italian champions AC Milan welcome Bologna to the San Siro stadium on Sunday in a game which they must win in order to remain in contention for the Scudetto.

Milan find themselves one point behind league leaders Juventus with only six rounds left to play in the Serie A this season, and simply can't afford to slip-up any more to win back-to-back titles.

But according to head coach Massimiliano Allegri, the Rossoneri will have to be in top form because they face a very difficult Bologna side who are particularly dangerous when in the attacking third and will arrive in the San Siro with nothing to lose.

"Bologna have good technique, especially when going forward. They'll come here with no pressure on them at all and they'll have nothing to lose. It's a trap in disguise and we'll have to go into it completely focused, far better than we did in the last two games and in the next two weeks all matches will be decisive for the league," Allegri declared to the press.

"Compared to one week ago, we've had more time to prepare. Prior to that we were playing a game every three days and as from tomorrow we'll still have two games a week so this week was useful to get some work done. We know how difficult the moment is, the game will have to be played with the right competitive determination to get the three points," he continued.

Allegri went on to state that Milan still have the title within their reach and must take full advantage of the opportunities that are presented to them.

"We don't need to end the season with regrets, without taking advantage of any eventual slip-ups from Juventus. We're all professionals, the contract renewals come after. What counts is our objective, the title."

Finally, the coach voiced his opinion about rivals Juventus, and their upcoming clash with Roma.

"I haven't read the papers today and I don't want to talk about things that have to do with Juventus but only about my team. I'm not convinced that the game against Roma will be the toughest one from here to the end of the season. Last season we had a very tough game against Bologna.

"You never know in soccer and that's why we have to give our all and then see if Juventus drop any points. We have the chance to win all six of them but right now we have to think about Bologna and return to the top of the table even if just for a couple of hours," he concluded.
