Fortunately for Allegri, who guided AC Milan to the Serie A title in 2011, a goal in each half from Stephan El Shaarawy secured his side a valuable three points at San Siro to ensure last season's runners-up are in with a chance of making up for their poor start to the campaign.
"The victory is for Allegri and the fans," El Shaarawy said. "We are with him, he has our trust.
"I'm happy because of today's victory. It will give us a lot of morale for the next games."
