Allegri knows what AC Milan need, says Amelia

The goalkeeper has little doubt that the former Cagliari coach has what it takes to guide the San Siro side back to the summit of the table
Marco Amelia is confident that Massimiliano Allegri is the right man to help AC Milan return to the top after a difficult start to the 2012-13 campaign.

The Rossoneri struggled to find their best form in the opening months of the season as Allegri seemed to be unsure as to which formation suited the team best, but good results against Napoli and Juventus indicate that they are on the right track now.

"I think our coach knows exactly what he wants. He knows exactly what he needs to do," Amelia told Milan Channel.

"I understand that he thinks that the right formation for us and our future is a 4-3-3. In previous matches he changed a few things to test out our new players, but now we are going ahead with this formation towards our true identity."

Milan climbed to ninth spot in the table following their win over Juventus at the weekend.
