AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri says he's felt the confidence of president Silvio Berlusconi.

The pair gave a joint media conference yesterday.

"The rapport with the President has always been exceptional, as I think he is the President with the most trophies in the world," said Coach Allegri.

"As I have always accepted his advice, he always accepted my explanations and we ultimately do agree on many things.

"The President talks about respect now, but the real show of respect was when he decided not to make a change of Coach after eight rounds."
