Allegri hails important AC Milan triumph over Torino

The Rossoneri triumphed 4-2 over Torino - climbing to seventh in the Serie A in the process - with four separate goalscorers on the scoresheet
AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri believes that their 4-2 triumph over Torino is an important result in their bid to continue rising up the Serie A standings.

The Turin-based hosts went ahead in the 28th minute, but their second strike came after a flurry of four goals from Robinho, Antonio Nocerino, Giampaolo Pazzini then Stephan El Shaarawy.

The Rossoneri victory leaves them seventh in the table and five points off fourth-placed Roma, who have 29 points, along with Fiorentina and Lazio who lie in fifth and sixth places respectively on goal difference.

"It was an important victory, which followed up the previous win. We went behind to a technical error, but we did well to deserve the win," Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.

"We could have done better in the first half where we lacked a bit of speed and did not reach the placement of midfielders.

"We are moving closer to the top six in the standings, and it was important to win today, also considering the result of Roma last night."
