Milan have insisted that boss Massimiliano Allegri will not be leaving for Roma at the end of the season.
The tactician has been paired with the capital club for 2013-14 after the decision to sack Zdenek Zeman on Saturday.
“Roma can’t steal Coaches from other clubs,” the official noted. “Allegri will still be the Milan boss next season.
“He’s a good tactician and we’ve always known that. He reminds me of Carlo Ancelotti, for how balanced he is.”
Allegri’s job was thought to be on the line in the Autumn after a problematic start to the campaign and Silvio Berlusconi’s open admiration for future Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola.
“The club were right to not make a coaching change,” Galliani continued. “Other clubs would not have done the same.
“We’re climbing back up the table and fighting for the positions that we always have done. We’re now travelling at our pace from the last two seasons.”
The Diavolo have won eight of their last 10 games in Serie A. Their only loss came at Roma in that run, while they were held at Sampdoria.
Allegri’s contract at Milan expires in June 2014.
