AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has played down the stinging criticism of the squad culture from Rino Gattuso.

The Sion signing slammed the attitude of his former teammates yesterday.

"Talking about things of the past does not mean much controversy," said Allegri..

"I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to coach the locker room for two years, I have won a league title and a Super Cup and for me it was very important. Then, unfortunately, the choices have been made but we must look forward and not backward."
