MILAN - Massimiliano Allegri is on course
to become AC Milan's next coach despite a hold up over his
contract at former club Cagliari.
"If he frees himself from Cagliari it will definitely be
Allegri," Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani told reporters
The 42-year-old Allegri, viewed by many commentators as
Italy's best young manager, emerged as front-runner for the job
He was surprisingly sacked by Cagliari after a row in April
but remains contracted to the Sardinian club.
"I'm not losing patience," Galliani added. "Allegri is a
coach linked to Cagliari until June 30, 2011 therefore it
doesn't depend on us but Cagliari president Massimo Cellino.
"He is now in Miami. I will see him next week but our
personal relationship is good."
If the deal with Cagliari is resolved, Allegri will take
over from Leonardo who left Milan by mutual consent at the end
of the season following a third-place finish in Serie A.
