Massimiliano Allegri admits his future at Milan is up in the air if he doesn’t win the Scudetto. “The club will decide whether I failed or not.”
Reports are intensifying that President Silvio Berlusconi will pull the plug on Allegri if he ends the season empty-handed.
“I do not judge myself, the club will decide whether I failed or not,” he said in today’s press conference.
“On May 13 we will draw a line under the campaign and evaluate it. I am not irritated by these reports, nor worried. Up until May 13 I am on this bench, then we’ll see. I can give advice on players to sign, but the club chooses the Coach.
“We are still in the race and I like to think Milan still have a chance, even if it above all depends on Juventus. All we have to do is focus on getting three points against Siena tomorrow.”
“Thiago Silva still doesn’t feel confident, so I won’t risk him. Kevin-Prince Boateng is 99 per cent sure of starting, then I have to see whether to start Antonio Cassano or Stephan El Shaarawy.
“Robinho is not feeling sharp, so I kept him out to allow him to recover fully and opted to call those in better shape. We have all paid the price for so many games and the race to catch up Juve, but tomorrow we are forced to win and therefore put pressure on Juventus.
“Looking at the Bianconeri, it’s difficult to think they can lose points, but anything can happen in football.”
