AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri insists he's happy with his relationship with president Silvio Berlusconi.

The pair are said to be at loggerheads.

“Perhaps I explained myself badly,” shrugged Allegri in his Press conference. “I said that as other clubs and Coaches had been dragged into the reports, it did not seem right to talk about the future, especially as right now I am married to Milan.

“I am very pleased to hear the fans and players say they appreciate my work. It’s not necessarily true that if I at times have a difference of opinion with the President, it means we don’t get along. There is a strong rapport and after three years we are also linked by affection.

“There is dialogue and respect. Of course, then a President evaluates what happens on the field and makes his decision, but he has always called me on the phone and we have a good rapport.

“It is absolutely not true that I am ‘furious.’ We get along well despite everything that is written. At times we can have opposing views, but that is part of the sport.”
