Berlusconi standing by AC Milan coach Allegri

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has given coach Massimiliano Allegri his public backing.

Berlusconi met the players at training yesterday to deliver a peptalk.

"I'm not here to scream at the squad because that is not what they need," Berlusconi said.

"We start again from today, I want to get close to Milan again and get back what I had lost over these years.

"If Allegri is here then it is because I have faith in him," he added. "This is an unfortunate period, but let us not forget what he has won.

"Milan have a precise tradition. In 26 years, we've changed the Coach during the course of a season on only two occasions. We are serious people, we have a good relationship with the tactician."
