Allegri: 'Milan haven't lost worth'

Massimiliano Allegri is not worried by Milan's poor start to the season. “We haven't lost our worth because of two defeats.”

The Rossoneri won the title last term, but have already lost heavily to Scudetto contenders Napoli and Juventus.

“We haven't put together many points in these first five rounds, so we have to get back on track by evaluating the negative and positive aspects,” the Coach told Milan Channel.

“Luckily when the Serie A season resumes we'll also have some players back from injury and the calm that allows us to play with the right attitude, so without too much tension.

“Milan haven't suddenly lost our worth because of two defeats in Turin and Naples. Of course we expected to have more points at this stage, but the season is long and we have all the time to recover.”

Allegri has been dealing with an injury crisis and Kevin-Prince Boateng picked up a knock during Saturday's friendly with the youth team.

“Robinho is already at a good fitness level and we'll see over the next few days if he'll already be available against Palermo.

“Zlatan Ibrahimovic will return from international duty with the hunger to win. The whole team needs everyone to work hard and keep calm.”
