Milan Coach Massimiliano Allegri On Tottenham, Roma, Ronaldinho & Antonio Cassano

Milan coach Massimilliano Allegri awaiting Tottenham clash with Roma and Antonio Cassano on his mind...
Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri insists Tottenham are beatable in the Champions League, while keeping an eye out on Roma and Antonio Cassano.

"Tottenham are an excellent team, but of all the opponents we could have had, they are not as tough," he told the press.

"However, all those in the last 16 are important teams."

News of Antonio Cassano's potential arrival from Sampdoria has caused a stir at San Siro. And the reation has been centred on Ronaldinho, whose agent revealed an offer from Palmeiras for a move in January.

"Ronaldinho will stay until June and he will do it in the best of ways," he added.

"Cassano? I spoke with Adriano Galliani this morning, but the situation has not been defined. We will talk during the market. Cassano is not a Milan player yet."

The Rossoneri will be playing to stretch their lead at the top when Roma visit in a game that holds surprises for Allegri.

"They will want to do well tomorrow night, but it is important for us to do well. Technically Roma are among the top three teams in Italy and we have to play them in the right way."

He insists there is time to think about Tottenham - a top level side.

"Tottenham are excellent and they deserve respect. We still have two months though and many games before them. Roma tomorrow, so a step at a time," he said.
