Tassotti: 'Future in four days'

Milan assistant manager Mauro Tassotti focused only on Siena and warns you’ll know Massimiliano Allegri’s future “in three or four days.”

The speculation hit overdrive late last night when President Silvio Berlusconi was heard telling people at an event that Allegri was going to Roma next season.

“The President has always been close to the team and have us a big hand in difficult moments to help our season change,” Tassotti told Milan Channel.

“His visits to Milanello did us a lot of good. As for what will happen at the end of the season, we’ll see in three or four days.”

Before that, the Rossoneri must win away to relegated Siena on Sunday night to secure third place despite Fiorentina’s pressure.

“The team is in good shape, though we’ll be without Sulley Muntari and the usual injured players. There is a little tension, as it’s a decisive game in Siena, but we need to remain calm – if possible – and win to make this an important season.

“The lads are accustomed to living with speculation, so they are concentrated only on the match. It was a difficult campaign, but we have the opportunity to close on a high.

“We certainly cannot affect other results, so we can only pour all our energy into making sure we get the result that we need in Siena.”

Riccardo Montolivo returned to full training today and there is the possibility he could feature on Sunday evening.

“Third place would mean so much after selling important players such as Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic,” added Tassotti.

“This season we launched so many young talents on to the scene. I think a third-place finish will change people’s judgement of our season compared to fourth.”
