Milan ultras call for Allegri to stay

AC Milan ultras have called on the club's president Silvio Berlusconi to leave manager Massimiliano Allegri in charge.

Speculation on Wednesday suggested that Allegri had been removed from his position following a meeting with vice president Adriano Galliani. However, no official statement has been made leading the Curva Sud to try and reason with Berlusconi.

Allegri has overseen the departure of key names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Pato and Antonio Cassano while still leading the Rossoneri to a third place finish in Serie A which enables them to compete in the Champions League.

In a statement, the Curva Sud praise Allegri for his expert handling of a young squad at a tricky point in Milan's history when they are attempting to reduce the team's average age while maintaining results on the pitch.

"Today, we find ourselves with a project which has only just started and which will soon be dismantled by presidential choice," the statement said.

"The championship started with great difficulty and Allegri's Milan appeared destined for the abyss. Aware that criticism would be detrimental to the atmosphere in the team, we decided to support Milan at the most difficult moment.

"Our choice paid off. We created a sort of tacit agreement between the ultras, the coach and the team, that we would all row in the same direction... we began to reap the rewards with the performances of [Stephan] El Shaaraway and careful management of players from coach Allegri, who we recognise has been carrying this project."

Reports suggest that former Rossoneri midfielder Clarence Seedorf could be in line to return to the club in Allegri's place. However, the appointment of someone with no managerial experience would not be welcomed by the fans.

"We can well understand, but not agree, that whoever invests can decide to change coach just for personal reasons," the statement continued.

"But if it's really part of a plan we must at least start again by putting the team into the hands of an experienced trainer.

"Certainly not someone like Seedorf or others who have zero experience on the bench and will come in to take in hand a squad of young players one month before the first official engagement and before the very difficult task which is the preliminaries of the Champions League.

"We hope that there will be respect for Milan as an institution and its fans, with a choice which is not just related to a particular moment, but with the continuation of a project which we decided to support to the end one year ago."
