AC Milan legend Alessandro Nesta insists his former club can still win the Serie A title despite their struggles this season.

The San Siro club have battled this season after losing key men Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva in the off-season.

Nesta, who now plays for Canadian side Montreal Impact in MLS, remains confident his former club will turn their campaign around.

“The papers have been in too much of a hurry to arrange Milan’s funeral,” he told Gazette.

“It is too early to say that the title is restricted to just Juventus or Inter (Milan). I promise you, at the end of the season my former team-mates will be up there.

“How do you explain their crisis? I do not know. A lot of quality players have gone but it won’t be long until they recover.

“They are a positive team and have the mentality to do it, so watch them climb the leaderboard.”

The 36-year old was also supportive of coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has been under considerable pressure from supporters and sections of the Italian media.

AC Milan sit 11th in the league but have improved in recent outings, collecting seven points from their past three matches.

“Allegri will pull through, for sure. He is lucky that Milan do not historically have a reputation to burn the coaches,” Nesta said.

“He is a good man and good at his job, so he will be fine.”
