AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri remains confident in his job.

Allegri remains under fire after President Silvio Berlusconi refused to confirm whether he'd still be on the Milan bench next season, even though his contract runs until 2014.

"I have an excellent rapport with the club, though clearly a Coach is always tied to results. This season the task was to get the best out of young players.

"Seeing Mattia De Sciglio, Stephan El Shaarawy, Riccardo Montolivo, Kevin Constant and also Kevin-Prince Boateng improve gives us optimism for the rest of the season."
