PSG signing Thiago Silva has urged AC Milan fans to get behind coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Thiago Silva admits Milan will face a rebuilding phase after this summer's exodus.

"I am not a mercenary, Milan was my home. On the other hand they made a lot of money on the deal. AC Milan paid €10million for me and sold me for €42million.

"It is true that Milan have lost some quality. They have also lost leading figures such as [Clarence] Seedorf, [Filippo] Inzaghi, and [Gennaro] Gattuso.

"Milan will have to rebuild the team. It will not be easy, but Allegri is an intelligent coach who will find solutions."
