Allegri admits surprise over AC Milan Robinho capture

AC Milan coach Max Allegri admits he was surprised by their capture of Manchester City winger Robinho.

Allegri says at one stage this summer he thought Milan didn't have enough money to go shopping in a supermarket.

However, in the space of just two days, the Rossoneri lit up the transfer market with the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho.

Speaking to the Milan Channel, Allegri said: "I didn't expect a reinforcement like Robinho. He is a player of great calibre.

"We are talking about a wonderful present from Berlusconi, who I would like to thank again with my heart."

When prompted on Ibrahimovic, Allegri said: "I am very happy with his arrival."
