Baresi: Allegri needs more time

Milan legend Franco Baresi has backed boss Massimiliano Allegri to turn things around at the Stadio Meazza.

Allegri’s job is on the line after four losses in their first seven League games, but the former defender thinks he’ll get things right.

“Allegri won the Scudetto two years ago and he came second last season,” the No 6 told Sky Sport Italia on Wednesday.

“He needs to put together a new team, he needs to gain confidence in the new players and the youngsters who still have to grow. He needs time to get the best out of the players he has.

“Patience is needed. A lot of players left at the same time, perhaps too many, and that created some problems.

“But I’m certain that Milan will return to their high levels because this club remains a strong one and is dedicated to being competitive. Fans shouldn’t be impatient.”

Milan are next in action on Saturday when they travel to in-form Lazio.
