Cagliari midfielder Andrea Cossu admits he was disappointed with the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri.

Cossu has thrived under the guidance of Allegri and his form has attracted the attention of European heavyweights Barcelona and AC Milan.

He said: "Yes, I was disappointed, because he is a good person with whom we have worked well for two years, so I'm sorry. But we are professionals, we must move forward, and indeed, I emphasize our welcome to Giorgio Melis and Gianluca Festa."
