Allegri - 'the walking dead' in Milan 2

Allegri, no exaggeration, is a vivid illustration of the `walking corpse` metaphor.

Losing 1-2 at Udinese yesterday was Milan’s third defeat in the first four matches in Serie A this season, meaning the team had the worst starting results since 1930. The chair at Allegri’s feet was originally

The end of Allegri (right) in Milan is very near.

The Sun newspaper (UK) yesterday quoted an anonymous member of Milan’s board of directors that Allegri’s future will be decided in four more games at the latest.

`The match against Cagliari, the away trip to Parma and Zenit St Petersburg and most importantly, the derby against Inter on October 7, will be the last opportunities for the coach to save himself from being fired,`

However, the Italian press believes that Allegri’s reign in Milan could end in the fifth round of Serie A in the middle of this week, if he and his students do not win against Cagliari at San Siro.

Milan currently no longer has any majestic image of the Serie A champion just 16 months ago.

Many sources from Italy in the past few days also reported that Milan had contacted Rino Gattuso to invite him to join Tassotti in an interim role.

But instead of sympathy, patience and absolute support for the coach, Milan seems to just want to kick Allegri out as soon as possible.
