My ghost goal would not have been enough to win Milan Scudetto

Sulley Muntari admits Milan would 'probably not' have won the Scudetto even if his 'ghost goal' against Juventus had been allowed to stand.

The Rossoneri were leading Antonio Conte's Old Lady by a goal to nil in a vital clash in the 2011-12 Serie A title race when the Ghanaian thought he had doubled his side's lead.

However, his headed effort was not given as a goal despite clearly crossing the line, with Juve going on to equalise and claim a 1-1 draw.

A win would have put Milan four points clear of their opponents on the day but Muntari believes the Bianconeri would have ended the season as champions anyway.

"Even if it had been allowed, it probably wouldn't have been enough for the Scudetto," Muntari told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The truth is that under Conte, they [Juventus] felt like lions.

"Then I reflect: we had Ibra, Robinho, Seedorf, Nesta, Thiago. With these players you can play at 50 per cent and still win.

"That lost Scudetto and the fact I didn't end my career with Milan are my biggest regrets. I could have done more with the Rossoneri."
