AC Milan in crisis over Berlusconi sack letter for Allegri

AC Milan are in crisis after a letter allegedly written by president Silvio Berlusconi sacking coach Massimiliano Allegri was read out on Italian television. The letter was read out live on Il Processo di Biscardi, though Milan last night denied it was connected to Berlusconi.

"There will be a complete change in the coaching staff. We will also, if necessary, re-organise the club structure," read the letter that has now been denied by Milan.

"After the disastrous start to the season, I met with the Coach and directors to tell everyone this situation had to be overturned.

"I also specified that the team had to step on to the field with a different tactical set-up, as I have a lot of experience in this area.

"The results were seen straight away, modesty aside, starting from the comeback to draw 2-2 with Napoli. From the relegation zone we climbed to third place, earned yesterday by the skin of our teeth.

"I have already called for tomorrow a complete revamp of the coaching staff and, if it were needed, a more efficient and complete re-organisation of the club structure."
