Embattled AC Milan coach Allegri gets vote of confidence

AC Milan's season went from bad to worse as it dropped another game, 2-1, at Udinese and had two players sent off, but Coach Massimiliano Allegri was given a vote of confidence by vice president Adriano Galliani.

“We played better than Udinese,” insisted Galliani on Milan Channel. “The team is showing signs of improvement and now we await the first home win on Wednesday against Cagliari. Allegri is not up for debate. We are going forward with this coach, as he has the total faith of the president [Silvio Berlusconi] and me. Don’t forget he has earned 162 points in two years and that is not to be sniffed at."

Galliani praised the Milan players for working hard after Cristian Zapata and second-half substitute Kevin-Prince Boateng were sent off in the second half.
