Constant grateful to Allegri

Milan midfielder Kevin Constant has claimed that Coach Massimiliano Allegri has given him confidence.

The Guinea international joined the Rossoneri over the summer on-loan from Genoa and has praised his under-fire boss for giving him an opportunity in the first team.

“Allegri has given me confidence,” he told Milan Channel. “At the beginning I couldn't find a space in the team, but now I've been given that opportunity, I want to take it.

“When I play I always try to give my best. I'm starting to grow into my surroundings, and hopefully I can continue on this positive path.

“I hope the team will be able to recover [from its bad start],” he added.

Consatnt started his first game of the season on Tuesday in the club's 2-2 draw with Palermo.
