Marco Borriello struck the only of the game at the San Siro.
â€śAnalysing the game, we created a great deal in the first half without running any real risks, but after the break Milan did lose intensity all over the pitch,â€ť he said of the 1-0 result.
â€śItâ€™s a shame, as we had the game under control and wanted to win tonight. We shouldâ€™ve broken the deadlock before half-time.
â€śItâ€™s a pity to end the year with a defeat, but we can learn from this result. Itâ€™s true that we lost at home to both Juventus and Roma, but overall we can be happy with our record in head-to-heads.
â€śLetâ€™s not forget we are still top of the table and at least three points clear, so itâ€™s nothing to be sniffed at.â€ť
Andrea Pirlo limped off in the opening 25 minutes, forcing a reshuffle of the Rossoneri midfield.
â€śAndrea had been playing very well up until then, but Clarence Seedorf impressed in a difficult situation when he came off the bench,â€ť continued Allegri.
â€śItâ€™s a shame Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up that yellow card, as it means heâ€™ll be suspended for the next game against Cagliari.â€ť
