Ac Milan: Blasted by Paolo Bonolis

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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
