AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri insists 2013 will be a successful year for the club.

The Rossoneri made mass changes to their squad in the summer and they've already lost seven of their first 18 games so far.

"I think the club did well because they could have changed Coach in a moment of difficulty," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"When results are missing then it is the Coach who pays the price."

Milan did see an upturn in results recently, but they lost heavily in Rome on Saturday night against a rampant Roma.

"I'm sure that we'll have a good second half of the season," Allegri added. "We're behind in the standings so we have nothing to lose."
