Milan made an equally poor start to last season but recovered to claim third spot in Serie A but few are predicting a repeat this time around in a competitive Italian top flight.
“I have just spoken to president [Silvio] Berlusconi, he was satisfied with the performance of the team. It was a good Milan and everyone will remain in their place. Allegri’s position is not up for debate. We go forward with Allegri.”
Milan enjoyed the better of the play at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi, amassing 75% possession and firing 17 shots on goal.
“If Robinho’s shot had gone in off the post, then we’d be here talking about a victory," Galliani added. "This is football. In any case, we are satisfied and it was good to keep a clean sheet.”
