The former Italy prime minister essentially revealed that the coach was to be given his marching orders despite having taken the Rossoneri to third in Serie A this season, but the club has insisted on its official website that no such statement has been publicized.
Not long beforehand on Monday, it was reported that Berlusconi had penned a message revealing that the entire Milan coaching staff was set to be replaced, with no mention that Allegri would be spared.
"There will be a complete change in the coaching staff. We will also, if necessary, re-organize the club structure," Berlusconi is said to have written to Il Processo di Biscardi. "After the disastrous start to the season, I met with the coach and directors to tell everyone this situation had to be overturned.
"I also specified that the team had to step on to the field with a different tactical set-up, as I have a lot of experience in this area.
"The results were seen straight away, modesty aside, starting from the comeback to draw 2-2 with Napoli. From the relegation zone we climbed to third place, earned yesterday by the skin of our teeth.
"I have already called for tomorrow a complete revamp of the coaching staff and, if it were needed, a more efficient and complete re-organisation of the club structure."
