Berlusconi: Allegri will remain AC Milan coach

The Rossoneri supremo has denied rumours that the club is considering dismissing their current trainer at the end of the season if they do not win the Scudetto
Silvio Berlusconi has insisted that AC Milan have no intention of replacing head coach Massimiliano Allegri at the end of the season.

A number of recent reports have suggested that the Rossoneri were ready to part company with their current trainer if they fail to successfully defend their Serie A title.

However, Berlusconi has now made it clear that the 44-year-old Allegri will still be the man in charge in the 2012-13 campaign.

"Do I still have faith in Allegri? Yes, I’ve already confirmed him as the Milan coach for next season," Berlusconi stated to reporters.

Allegri was appointed Milan coach in the summer of 2010, and guided the San Siro side to the Scudetto in his first season in charge.

The Rossoneri currently sit second in the Serie A table, trailing leaders Juventus by one point with two more games to go.
