Allegri certain he will remain as coach of AC Milan

The Italian boss affirms that he will stay on in charge of the Rossoneri despite the club's disappointing season, and stressed that he has the backing of the board
AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has guaranteed that he will not leave the club in the summer.

The 44-year-old's future at San Siro has been put into doubt after the Rossoneri failed to retain their Serie A crown, finishing four points behind champions Juventus.

Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has since rubbished reports that he might jettison the boss, and Allegri has intimated that he is already making plans for the future.

"I am 100 per cent sure that I will stay," he told Milan Channel. "I have already spoken with the board and I am planning for the upcoming years."

The former Cagliari coach, who joined Milan in 2010, has guided the club to one Scudetto and one Italian Supercoppa.
