Allegri could revive Milan: Baresi

Milan: AC Milan legend Franco Baresi believes that Massimiliano Allegri could revive the Rossoneri provided he is given enough time.

The Italian football club`s head coach has been under fire after his side suffered four losses in their first seven league games, but Baresi insisted the former Cagliari boss could turn the tables around.

"Allegri won the Scudetto two years ago and he came second last season," Baresi was quoted as saying by Wednesday.

"He needs to put together a new team, he needs to gain confidence in the new players and the youngsters who still have to grow. He needs time to get the best out of the players he has.

"Patience is needed. A lot of players left at the same time, perhaps too many, and that created some problems.

"But I`m certain that Milan will return to their high levels because this club remains a strong one and is dedicated to being competitive. Fans shouldn`t be impatient," he said.
