"Milan Pre-Wrote The Epilogue"

Fiorentina have essentially accused AC Milan of rigging the Serie A in the league’s dramatic climax.

The Rossoneri had to beat Siena on Sunday in order to secure third place on the log and Champions League qualification, with La Viola hot on their heels.

And things were looking bleak for Milan with six minutes to go, as they trailed their relegated opponents 1-0.

But two late goals from Milan, including Mario Balotelli’s debatable equalising penalty, ensured Milan ended the season with Champions League football, while Fiorentina were left to suck the hind leg.

As the dust settled on the Serie A’s underwhelming season, Fiorentina were fuming about Milan’s “gifted” penalty.

"Milan were gifted a penalty," Viola defender Manual Pascual told the Mediaset Premium.

"It was disappointing to see the dream disappear like that. ... we believed in the Champions League."

"If I say everything I think, I won't play again in Italy," defender Gonzalo Rodriguez added on Twitter, alluding to his suspicions of corruption.

Meanwhile, the club’s sporting director Daniele Prade said the team was not surprised by the way events unfolded in Milan’s favour.

"We feel impotent in the face of these situations," he said.

"There aren't words at the moment. We deserved a lot more, we have never been gifted anything.

"We went from euphoria to misery but I can say we had expected it. The epilogue had already been written."
