Ac Milan: Blasted by Paolo Bonolis

Bonolis, 51, used Inter's in-house television channel to express his suspicions Milan are being helped to qualification for the Champions League while the Nerazzurri are "completely denied any penalties" as part of a predetermined "script".

His comments came after Inter were beaten 4-3 at home by Atalanta on Sunday, with German Denis' second-half penalty starting a comeback and inspiring head coach Andrea Stramaccioni to accuse referee Andrea Gervasoni of "seeing something that wasn't there" in the form of a Walter Samuel handball in the box.

Bonolis told inter.it: "The pretext is now clear, there must be a script with an end already written for Milan, who have made investments and want to be brought into the Champions League.

"It's a comedy. It's obvious.

"There have been certain decisions that were surely made around a table.

While Inter are completely denied any penalties they give them to (Milan).

"It is important to defuse anything that could jeopardise their project - the gigantic comedy - that has the predetermined outcome I mentioned.

"The other teams are just extras in the scene, the script has already been written. We know who the murderer is, who the winner will be, and who the loser will be.

"If I were (Inter) president (Massimo) Moratti I'd just field the youth team.

You can no longer believe in the good faith of the officials, it is all a comedy.

"It is so blatant that now you just close your eyes as we are denied obvious penalties and non-existent ones are given against us. It just makes you sad."

Milan, who lead Inter by two places and eight points in the current standings following yesterday's 2-2 draw at Fiorentina, responded with a strongly-worded statement on their official website.

It read: "The statements of Paolo Bonolis, broadcast on Inter Channel and published on Inter's official site, apart from being without foundation, appear to be exceptionally serious."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
