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."
