Milan allay Inter fixture fears

ROME - AC Milan offered on Friday to draw lots to allay Inter Milan's fears about fixture congestion at their shared San Siro stadium.

Inter chief executive Ernesto Paolillo told the club's website it was "unacceptable" his team had to play an Italian Cup quarter-final against Juventus on January 28, a day after the Milan vs Udinese tie on the same surface.

Milan replied on their website that they "proposed to draw (lots) to establish which match should be played first."
