Milan chief hints at Allegri sacking

The time may have come for AC Milan to draw a line under their disappointing season and relieve Massimiliano Allegri of his duties, according to general manager Barbara Berlusconi.

Berlusconi has favoured a change on the bench ever since she gained more authority at the club, becoming vice-president and general manager at the end of 2013. Following Sunday's 4-3 defeat to Sassuolo, she suggested that the time for a new face may be nigh.

"It's no longer tolerable that our fans have to witness an unacceptable performance like this one," Berlusconi told ANSA. "It has been a disappointing evening, like many, and which only serves to prove how necessary and urgent, with the contribution of everybody, it is to change."

Massimiliano Allegri AC Milan concern
Barbara Berlusconi appears to have lost patience with Massimiliano Allegri.

Milan are widely expected to appoint Clarence Seedorf as their new coach from the summer, when Allegri has already confirmed he will be leaving. Since the Dutchman still has six months to go on his playing contract with Brazilian club Botafogo, an internal solution may be preferred to bridge that gap.

Filippo Inzaghi, coach of the club's under-19s who have reached the last 16 of the new UEFA Youth League, could be promoted with Allegri's departure hastened, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, which expects a decision to be taken when Milan's other general manager Adriano Galliani meets with club president Silvio Berlusconi on Monday.

Sunday's defeat leaves Milan 10 points behind the top five -- a gap that could grow to 12 points on Monday night when Inter Milan face Chievo. The Rossoneri host second-division Spezia in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.
