AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti shrugged off defeat to Udinese last night.

The result handed the Scudetto to Inter, but Ancelotti argued: "The Scudetto was not decided tonight, it had gone a long time ago.

"We accept them without problems. Our target has always been to qualify for the Champions League and that is what we're going to do.

"Inter have been the most consistent side and for that they deserve the Scudetto."

He added: "We need three points to achieve Champions League qualification. We wasted an opportunity today, but we will get it next time."
