Serie A strugglers Chievo Verona and Sampdoria parted ways with their respective coaches, Giuseppe Sannino and Delio Rossi, on Tuesday, while AC Milan’s under-fire coach, Massimiliano Allegri, received an unexpected vote of confidence from club management following a frustrating 0-0 draw with Chievo over the weekend.
Milan’s sixth game without a win left it 10th in the Serie A standings with 13 points, 19 behind league leader AS Roma. Despite this, Milan VP Adriano Galliani said the plan is to stick with Allegri until further notice. "I just talked to [club president Silvio] Berlusconi. We'll go forward with Allegri, He agrees with me. If Robinho had scored instead of hitting the post against Chievo we would be talking about a win. We will look at the positive things. At least finally we didn't concede."
