Rossoneri expected to re-evaluate position at end of season.
According to the latest reports in the Italian media, Massimiliano Allegri will remain as the AC Milan coach until the end of the season.
There had been some doubt over his position on Monday morning, with club owner Silvio Berlusconi reportedly convening with his children for a meeting at lunchtime to discuss the future of the club.
Vice-President Adriano Galliani was also involved in those discussions, and while his position is also under scrutiny currently, he had stated on Sunday evening after the 0-0 draw at Chievo that Allegri’s position was not under threat.
Nevertheless, after a disappointing run of results which has left the Rossoneri 15 points adrift of the Champions League places, it remains to be seen how long the current coach is able to hold on to the role.
Speculation on Monday suggested that former striker Pippo Inzaghi would be appointed until the end of the season, but as reported by Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Allegri has now had his position confirmed by the hierarchy.
With his current contract set to expire at the end of the season, it is expected that Milan will begin their search for his replacement in the coming months.
Allegri was able to survive a scare last year by guiding the club back into the Champions League with a last day of the season win over Siena, but he has never fully convinced some sceptics and with the on-going struggles it is difficult to envisage an extension being offered.
The defeat to Fiorentina a fortnight ago was initially seen as the beginning of the end, but it appears as though the management still back him to turn things around.
