AC Milan boss admits to 'problems' at the San Siro

AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has admitted things aren't going too well for his team this season.

The Rossoneri have had a disastrous start to their league campaign, winning just two of their opening seven games and amassing just eight points.

With leaders Roma already 13 points ahead, Allegri has admitted they've got what they deserve at this stage of the season.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: "You don’t need to be a scientist to understand that Milan have problems.

"The league table says we have eight points and it means we deserve eight points. All we can try to do is get players back from injury and climb the table. We’re going to need time.”

The comments come after Milan suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of reigning champions Juventus. Despite opening the scoring in the first minute of the game, Milan slipped to a third defeat of the season and, to add insult to an already injury-hit squad, will be without Philippe Mexes next time round after the defender was sent off.

Allegri took charge at the San Siro in 2010 and secured the club's first Serie A title since 2004 in his debut season. The two seasons since have been less successful, with Milan finishing second and then third last year. 

Milan will need to improve on current form should Allegri keep his job, with owner Silvio Berlusconi reportedly keen to appoint a former player as manager.

Among those rumoured to be in contention are Dutch duo Marco van Basten and Clarence Seedorf and current youth-team coach Filippo Inzaghi.
