AC Milan legend Pippo Inzaghi says coach Massimiliano Allegri needs more time to turn things around.

The Rossoneri have had a poor start to the campaign, but the former striker - who quit the club in June to become a youth team boss with the Diavolo - has backed Coach Massimiliano Allegri to turn things around.

"There have been too many changes," Inzaghi told the Corriere dello Sport. "The old guard has gone, as have Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Antonio Cassano.

"But we have to give the Coach some time because the squad is still excellent. Only Juventus have that something extra."
