Galliani slams Marrotta for criticising Milan

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has responded angrily to Beppe Marrotta’s comments on the Milan – Palermo game. Marrotta, Juventus’ Sporting Director, was referring to the penalty conceded by the Bianconeri against Roma and compared the incident to a similar one from the game between the Rossoneri and Palermo.
Galliani has expressed his dissatisfaction at Milan being dragged into this discussion and rounded on Marrotta: “I dislike the statements made by Marrotta. I think they could have been avoided because we never talk of others. I would ask others to do likewise”.
Roma were awarded a penalty after a free-kick struck by Francesco Totti hit Simone Pepe’s trailing hand. In the Milan-Palermo game of the previous round, a Fabrizio Miccoli free-kick hit Kevin-Prince Boateng’s arm and no penalty was given. Marrotta brought up this incident in his post-match comments and asked for uniformity in calls.
Galliani condemned Marrotta’s decision to speak out in such a manner: “It could be pointed out that night there was a penalty on Mexes. I am no saint and I protest like others, but I would never dream of bringing up data on other teams and data on penalties. Juventus made a mistake”.
Galliani also spoke of his delight with Milan’s victory over Inter and heaped more praise on goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “Ibra is a warrior. He knows how to lead the dressing room and I don’t know what will happen to Milan with him. But I do understand why Inter, Juventus and Ajax have won so many championships”.
Milan now sit one point clear of Lazio at the top of the table but more importantly for the Rossoneri faithful they are six ahead of Inter. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
