Galliani: 'Full faith in Allegri'

Adriano Galliani has assured Milan Coach Massimiliano Allegri “is not up for debate. He has the total faith of the President and me.”

The Rossoneri fell to a second consecutive defeat this afternoon, losing 2-1 to Udinese with two players sent off.

“We played better than Udinese,” insisted Vice-President Galliani on Milan Channel.

“The team is showing signs of improvement and now we await the first home win on Wednesday against Cagliari.

“Allegri is not up for debate. We are going forward with this Coach, as he has the total faith of the President and me.

“Don’t forget he has earned 162 points in two years and that is not to be sniffed at. The team worked hard today even with nine men and proved how much they care for the Coach. So do we.

“For the past year luck seems to be against us, but it’s early days and we are only in Week 4.”

Bizarrely, Milan and Inter have failed to secure a single victory on home turf since the new hybrid artificial surface was laid.

“San Siro is reserving a few surprises this term both for Inter and us.”
