Allegri sacked as AC Milan coach

Massimiliano Allegri has been sacked as manager of AC Milan, following a shock 4-3 defeat to Sassuolo in Serie A.

AC Milan have announced that coach Massimiliano Allegri has been dismissed following Sunday’s 4-3 defeat to Sassuolo.

The club’s general manager, Barbara Berlusconi, had suggested Allegri would lose his job in the wake of the result, and a statement on the club’s official website on Monday confirmed his departure.

The statement read: “AC Milan announce that first-team coach Mr. Massimiliano Allegri and his staff have been dismissed with immediate effect. AC Milan would like to thank Mr. Allegri and his staff for the work they did and wish them the best for the future.”

The club also confirmed that Mauro Tassotti -- who played for the club for 17 years and has been on the coaching staff for over a decade -- would take temporary charge of the first team. His first match in charge is set to come against Spezia in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday

Allegri took charge of Milan in 2010 after two years with Cagliari and enjoyed a successful debut campaign, winning the league as well as being named Serie A’s coach of the year. Milan finished as runners-up in his second season and last year recovered from a poor start to finish third and secure a place in the Champions League.

However, while Allegri guided the Rossoneri through the group stage in this season’s Champions League, their domestic form has been miserable, and they currently sit 11th in the table, some 30 points behind leaders Juventus.

He had already announced that he would not be staying at the San Siro beyond the end of the season, with former Milan star Clarence Seedorf having been tipped to replace him.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Seedorf, who is still playing for Botafogo, could free himself from his contract at the Brazilian club immediately if he were to be given the chance to take charge of Milan.

“I took care of Clarence's contract myself and there is a clause which would enable him to leave the club at any time without penalty,” the Dutchman's agent, Deborah Martin, said. “That is unless he goes to play for a different club.

“I would also like to emphasise that he already possesses everything he needs to be able to coach. He has already taken all the necessary steps in Brazil and Holland.”
