The AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has said that the performance of the team has not been the issue this season, but the results have been the main problem. AC Milan have endured a terrible start to the new season and are currently closer to the relegation zone rather than the top of the table. AC Milan finally managed to put behind their problems and get a 1-0 win over Genoa during the weekend. This victory helped them to get clear of the relegation zone. AC Milan might have sold a number of crucial players over the summer, but their results have so far been extremely poor.
As a result, it is widely expected that the manager Massimiliano Allegri will be sacked from his position in the next few days. However, he has given him some breathing space with the 1-0 win. Stephan El Shaarawy scored in the final few minutes of the match to give AC Milan the first victory in the last three matches. They were coming into the match on the back of three consecutive defeats, which have intensified the pressure on Massimiliano Allegri. However, Stephan El Shaarawy proved once again that he is a shining star in an otherwise poor Milan team by scoring the goal.
“I have always been relaxed as the team have put in strong performances. Criticism has been too harsh, considering what we have seen on the field. The situation at Milan is simply an issue of results, not performances. We could have scored in the first half, while there were a number of controversial penalty decisions. Overall, I am happy with the win. We secured this result in the difficult atmosphere surrounding us at the moment, and I am happy with the way the team has reacted,” said Allegri after the match.
