AC Milan coach Allegri backing fans over controversial protests

AC Milan coach Max Allegri is supportive of fans amid their latest protests.

For victory over Sampdoria, the Curva Sud was closed as punishment for anti-Neapolitan chants, but San Siro risks an entire ban as ultras protested outside the stadium with more insulting banners and there were some racist chants within the arena.

"The ultras came to salute the team yesterday and encourage them, just as they did last season during a tough moment. In my four years at Milan the Curva has been exemplary. There has always been mockery and it will always be there.

"We are improving in this sense, but as time goes on I hope there will be a better approach to fandom for those who come to the stadium."
