Massimiliano Allegri slams resignation rumours

The 45-year-old Italian manager has put an end to talk of him leaving his post at the Rossoneri, and has promised the fans that performances will get better

Massimiliano Allegri has quashed rumours about his resignation as AC Milan coach, underlining that he sees such stories as disrespectful to the fans and the culture of the club.

Last year's Serie A runners-up have had a slow start to the new season, with just three points from their first three games in Italy’s top flight and a scoreless draw in their Champions League opener against Anderlecht on Tuesday.


On Sunday, the Milanese outfit travel to Udinese and Allegri will be hoping to pick up three points. Fictitious reports about his resignation emerged midweek but the head coach has been quick to highlight the truth ahead of the clash at Stadio Friuli.

Speaking at a press conference, Allegri said: “I read about my alleged resignation in some newspapers and want to say that I have not resigned, and this story shows a lack of respect to the club and the fans. This is not an easy time but we are trying to improve.”

“When I started this year, after the summer sales, I accepted this challenge with great enthusiasm and determination, and we will get better,” he added.

Milan currently sit 10th in the table.
