Allegri: Ibra is staying

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has quashed speculation about the future of troubled striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic has tried Milan's patience recently after getting sent off in consecutive matches, the latest offence bringing a three-match ban.

Earlier this week, Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi expressed his disappointment at Ibrahimovic's actions and even said he felt like he'd thrown money away on his signing.

"I believe that Ibra will stay at Milan and that he has been exemplary this season aside from this month in which he has paid dearly for inappropriate behaviour," Allegri said.

"He has done extraordinary things above all in the first five months and he'll get back on track after his suspension.

"I believe that Ibra wanted to repay us after his initial two-match ban so it's a great disappointment for him to be suspended again."
