Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello says the club should stick with Massimiliano Allegri.

Allegri is struggling to win the backing of president Silvio Berlusconi.

"It is not easy for Allegri to work at Milan in these conditions, but the team is with him and that is important," said Capello.

"If I was the Milan President then I'd confirm him - 100 per cent. He has renewed the team and, even with just a few signings, I think they could have a great campaign next term."
