Former striker again linked with replacing Allegri on Monday.
Speculation in the Italian media on Monday has once again linked former AC Milan striker Pippo Inzaghi as a replacement for under-pressure coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Despite a disappointing 0-0 draw at Chievo on Sunday, the Rossoneri have seemingly decided to keep faith in their current coach after a run of results which has left them 15 points adrift of the top three.
However, it is understood that vice-President Adriano Galliani will have dinner with owner Silvio Berlusconi on Monday to discuss the situation, where it will potentially be decided whether or not a coaching change is required, as reported by Football Italia.
Allegri had been close to being sacked last season as Milan suffered a similarly disastrous start to the season, but the Italian tactician was able to turn things around.
Nevertheless, given the current situation it is expected that he will face further scrutiny and criticism, with Inzaghi waiting in the wings to come in.
The former Milan striker is currently coaching the Primavera youth team and has had successful results both domestically and in the UEFA Youth League so far this season.
Both Allegri and Inzaghi reportedly had a bust up at Milanello last year amid reports that the latter was pushing for the role of first team coach.
However, while that failed to materialise at the time it hasn’t entirely dismissed speculation which suggests that there is a possibility it still could happen.
Allegri’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, and there have been reports that Galliani will be replaced in the summer too.
