Struggling AC Milan sack Massimiliano Allegri

Massimiliano AllegriAC Milan have sacked manager Massimiliano Allegri following a shock 4-3 defeat to Serie A minnows Sassuolo. The Rossoneri, who have won just one of their last five games, have endured a nightmare season to date with their dire run of form leaving them 11th in the table. As a result the Italian giants are already a staggering 30 points adrift of league leaders Juventus, while they are 20 behind 3rd-placed Napoli who currently hold the last Champions Leeague qualifying spot.

Allegri took charge of Milan in 2010 and won the Scudetto in his first season in charge, before adding a Supercopa the following the campaign. However, this season has been a completely different story. Such is their demise that Milan are now only six points clear of the relegation zone, having recording just five wins from 19 league games. The San Siro side’s away from has been particularly woeful, with just one win on the road all season.

Sunday’s embarrassing defeat to new boys Saasuolo marked the first time in 12 years that they had lost a game in which they had held a two-goal lead, and in turn proved to be the final straw for the Milan hierarchy. Assistant coach Mauro Tassotti has taken charge of the first time, although he is unlikely to be in contention for the job. Club legend and youth team boss Filippo Inzaghi has emerged as the favourite in the next AC Milan Manager Market, while former Tottenham gaffer Andre Villas-Boas and Italy coach Cesare Prandelli are also in the mix.
