Milan chiefs have decided to stick by coach Massimiliano Allegri despite last night’s defeat to Lazio.
The Rossoneri have had a very disappointing start to the Serie A campaign, taking just 7 points from first 8 games, but the talented coach is hardly the only one to blame as it was the club chiefs who failed to sign proper replacements for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.
Even if media reports are suggesting that Allegri could be sacked unless the results improve soon, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has given the coach a vote of confidence.
“The coach will stay in his place and must find a way for the team to pick up points and emerge from this moment. There is no desire at all to change the coach,” Milan chief told reporters after the 3-2 loss to Lazio.
Last night’s defeat was team’s fifth in eight Serie A games, which marks Milan’s worst start to a league campaign in last 60 years.
The Rossoneri are, nevertheless, prepared to give Max Allegri some more time to turn things around as they still remember it was the former Cagliari boss who led them to the first league title after seven years in 2011.
