A phone call between Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani and Catania President Massimo Cellino ended a protracted battle that almost saw Massimiliano Allegri’s eminent move to the Rossoneri collapse.
“Despite the disappointment left to us by Massimiliano Allegri following his behaviour towards the end of the season, president Massimo Cellino has released him following a request from Milan”.
The above statement was posted on Catania’s official website. This news is bound to be a breath of fresh air to the Rossoneri faithful who are desperately in need of some good news after a topsy turvy 2009/2010 campaign.
Milan’s problem has never arisen from their coaches. Ancelotti and Leonardo were effective in their own right and hopefully, Allegri can do what they both failed to do in their tenures, sign young, talented players. Although Milan are yet to officially cement the deal, Catania’s actions demonstrate that progress is indeed being made and it is now only a matter of days until Milan close the deal.
The pressure is now on the club’s administrative arm to ensure that Allegri has all the tools he needs including the resources necessary to successfully build a winning team.
