Robinho likens AC Milan coach Allegri to Capello

Robinho has likened AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri to England boss Fabio Capello.

The Brazil international feels Milan are showing the same qualities of Capello's title winning Real Madrid team.

"This Milan reminds me of Capello's Real Madrid," Robinho said. "Capello's Real Madrid had many champions in its ranks.

"The Italian tactician managed to find the right balance between desire, actually the necessity, to propose spectacular football and the solidity that we needed to win La Liga.

"We wanted to win. But we also wanted to win entertaining. Milan have taken the same path. Allegri is a great teacher just like Capello was.

"It's clear. Milan remain a Brazilian team. Having fun with the ball is natural for us. Ibra, who is a monster in terms of power, has delicate feet.

"It's easy to play with him in the tight spaces."
