Milan, June 3 - Owner Silvio Berlusconi ended
months of speculation about Massimiliano Allegri's future at AC
Milan early on Monday when he said the coach will stay at the
helm of the seven-time European champions.
"We had a very honest and frank talk in which we analysed
and discussed this past season and we cleared a few things up,"
Berlusconi said in a statement after long talks with Milan's
coach and CEO Adriano Galliani during dinner on Sunday evening.
"We came to an agreement concerning what the coach is due
and what he is expected to give to the club.
"We also spoke about the kind of football that Milan must
play and about the squad for next season.
"We established guidelines about what we need to do on the
transfer market too.
"The relationship with the coach, which has never been
interrupted, continues with the utmost respect and faith".
Although Allegri had another year to run on his contract,
there was intense speculation when the Serie A season ended last
month that he would leave the club because he did not enjoy the
full confidence of Berlusconi.
Allegri led Milan to the Serie A title in his first
campaign at the club, the 2010-11 season, but the team ended the
next two season's trophyless.
Milan needed two late goals to beat already-relegated Siena
2-1 on the last day of the Serie A season in May to seal
third place and qualification for next season's Champions League
preliminaries.
Last term, however, Allegri was working with a
revolutionised squad following the departures in the close
season of Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic Brazil defender
Thiago Silva and several prized veterans, such as midfielders
Clarence Seedorf and Gennaro Gattuso.
The situation was not just of interest to Milan, as AS Roma
were reportedly set to hire Allegri if he had left Milan.
