Van Bommel marked his Serie A debut with a red card.
“It’s fair enough,” said Allegri.
“The referees make decisions based on what they see and this is an example. Van Bommel should’ve been a bit sneakier, but it is his second game in Italian football.
“These fouls are not generally sanctioned with a booking in Germany, but he is a generally aggressive player.”
“He is having the best season of his career in terms of intensity,” insisted Allegri.
“Ibra has a great deal of enthusiasm, feels like a leader and also knows how to defend, which is the most important thing. If he tracks back, then everyone else follows suit.”
