Berlusconi hands AC Milan boss Allegri vote of confidence

AC Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi has given his backing to coach Max Allegri after defeat to Juventus.

Italy's Prime Minister decided to stand by the 43-year-old Coach who had been accused of getting his tactics wrong.

Aside from saying that it would be better "if he combs his hair before going to do interviews," Berlusconi was keen to back Allegri.

"I have nothing to reproach the Coach and the team. Milan didn't play badly and deserved to equalise.

"We had many chances and the law of football says that if you don't profit from them then the others will score the goals.

"Sure, we had important absences, but a strong and competitive team must have quality substitutes.

"Anyway, this remains a team that is built to boss the pitch and the play and it's in a position to compete in Italy and in Europe."
