Milan Sack Allegri

AC Milan have confirmed the sacking of coach Massimiliano Allegri in the wake of their shock 4-3 loss to Sassuolo.

The 46-year-old was already due to leave the Rossoneri at the end of the current campaign but after a poor run of results, it was decided to part ways sooner rather than later.

The decision brings his three-and-a-half year stay with the club to an end - where the highlight was their Serie A title win back in 2011.

"AC Milan announce they have dismissed as coach of the first team, with immediate effect, Mr Massimiliano Allegri and his staff," read a Milan statement.

"AC Milan would like to thank Mr Allegri and his staff for the work done and their best professional achievements."

The club also revealed that assistant coach Mauro Tassotti would step in as interim manager, but whoever steps in faces a tough task this season with Milan 30 points behind leaders Juventus - and six points above the drop zone.
