Cagliari coach Massimiliano Allegri has cooled talk of Europe after their latest victory over Lecce.

"After today, we see things in a different way," Allegri explained. "We have beaten a team that up until yesterday was one of our direct rivals in the battle against relegation.

"From now on, our objective is to consolidate this position, even if it will not be easy given that the teams close behind us also began with other objectives.

"Let's leave talk of Europe alone. We have to continue doing our best without setting ourselves these goals.

"There are still three months until the end of the season," he said. "It would be a mistake to lower our guard."
