Massimiliano Allegri has been backed to continue as AC Milan coach despite the Rossoneri losing yet again in Serie A.
Milan went down 2-1 away at Udinese, finishing the match with nine men, in what is their third loss in four league games and leaves the Italian giants in the lower reaches of the Serie A table.
And vice-president Adriano Galliani has stressed that the 45-year-old’s post remains safe. Indeed, Galliani even feels that positives can be taken from the defeat at Udinese.
"The game was slightly better. Against Udinese we saw a Milan that were fighting, even when down to nine men", said Galliani.
"Allegri’s job is safe. I and the president have every confidence in him.
"For the past two years, Massimiliano has produced excellent performances with the team and we should not ignore this."
Milan will be expected to bounce back to winning ways next weekend when Allegri’s old club Cagliari are the visitors to the San Siro.
That match is followed by a visit to Parma before the Champions League resumes, with Milan in action away to Zenit St. Petersburg.
