AC Milan legend Billy Costacurta feels Massimiliano Allegri struggles with the politics at the club.

Allegri has fallen out with Milan president Silvio Berlusconi and is expected to be soon shown the door.

"The Scudetto they lost to Juventus last season and the negative start to this campaign probably caused the split," former defender Costacurta told Radio Mana Mana Sport.

"I imagine that Allegri did not reply to Berlusconi's criticism over the phone the same way that Ancelotti did.

"The President would ask Carlo to field Kaka in a more attacking position, so Ancelotti told Kaka to do it for the first five minutes of the match!"
