Galliani: Allegri’s job is safe

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has dismissed

suggestions coach Massimiliano Allegri’s job is under threat.

AC Milan have made their worst home start to a Serie A season in

82 years.

The Rossoneri have suffered shock defeats by newly-promoted

Sampdoria and Atlanta in their opening two home matches.

Last week, Galliani moved to quell rumours he had fallen out

with Allegri over Milan’s targets for the season.

Now he has been forced to assure the coach, who has been without

a host of injured stars including Robinho and Alexandre Pato, over

his future.

“Allegri is absolutely not up for debate,” said Galliani.

“He has to relax. Now we need to focus on winning and getting

our injured players back to full fitness.

“President Silvio Berlusconi asked me to stay close to the team

and reassure them at this time.”
