The head coach of AC Milan Massimiliano Allegri is held in high esteem by his players, the team's veteran goalkeeper Christian Abbiati said.
Allegri is under huge pressure after the Milan side lost three games out of four played this season in Serie A, reports Xinhua.
"The coach has been with us for two years and he's won a title, the Italian Super Cup and last year we almost won the league title," Abbiati said Monday. "The players hold him in high esteem."
"Unfortunately, this negative run continues," Abbiati said after the 1-2 loss at Udinese.
"It's a shame because we played well even at 1-1 with 10 players on the pitch, but the second sending off really cut our legs off," he said.
