Albertini: Milan must keep Allegri

Milan legend Demetrio Albertini has claimed that the Rossoneri should keep faith with Coach Massimiliano Allegri.

The San Siro side have had a disastrous start to the campaign – both domestically and in Europe – but the 41-year-old believes that the club should remain confident in the current boss.

“Milan must keep Allegri,” he told reporters at an FIGC Press conference. “Any project started by the Coach needs time. Everyone has to work together to get better results.

“I do not know where this crisis started, but it should be left for people inside the club to understand and fix.

“The logic of changing their market strategy is something everyone can understand, but the current results are visible for everyone to see.

“It is also true though, that the young players that have been brought in need time to grow.”

Milan currently sit in 15th place in Serie A, having picked up just seven points from their first eight games, and also laboured to a 1-0 defeat at Malaga on Tuesday, meaning they have suffered six defeats in 11 games this term.

Some reports are suggesting that Frank Rijkaard has already signed an agreement to become the team's new Coach ahead of the game against Genoa this weekend.
