AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has told Carlo Ancelotti to keep quiet about referees. Ancelotti was livid after Sunday's 1-1 draw with Lecce, blaming the referee for a soft decision awarding Lecce a freekick which lead to the last minute equaliser.

"Ancelotti should not be speaking about referees, the Milan club wishes that there is little said about this topic," Galliani told the Italian media on Monday.

"I avoid speaking about referees because this gives the players justification.,p> "Even when a referee makes an error, I say it is the players' error."
