Berlusconi confirms Allegri will stay at Milan

The Rossoneri supremo has assured the Livorno native that his job in charge of his team remains intact, despite surrendering to Juventus in the Serie A title race this season
AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has seemingly put an end to the speculation regarding the future of coach Massimiliano Allegri after stating that he has "no reason" to dispense with the 44-year-old.

The Rossoneri failed to retain their Serie A title from the previous campaign as they ended up losing the race for the Scudetto to a resurgent Juventus, leading to rumours surfacing that the club had run out of patience with the former Cagliari boss.

However, in response to the claims, Berlusconi told reporters: "[Allegri] has a two-year contract with us. I see no reason why there are all these discussions about his future."

Berlusconi then expressed his opinion on Milan's title challenge this season, and felt his side had a 19th league triumph in their grasp but allowed the Old Lady to work their way back into contention.

"It was Milan's title to throw away," the former Italian Prime Minister noted. "We were top of the table and in the lead.

"It's our fault that we did not win [the league]. However, it is impossible to not speak highly of Juventus, who have played really well all season and showed great perseverance."
