The future of AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has been speculated a lot in the last one year. It has been recently reported that the manager may offer his resignation even though this season is only a few matches old. He is thought to have fallen out with the higher-level officials at Milan over several issues like finances and budget. Allegri, though, has rejected any rumours by confirming that he will be a Milan manager going into the Champions league campaign.
The group stages of the Champions league will see Milan competing against usual contenders like Barcelona, Ajax, and Celtic. This is one of the toughest groups in this year's competition. Milan managed to qualify for the group stages after a convincing 4-1 victory on aggregate over Dutch club PSV Eindhoven. They came into the second leg match after a 1-1 draw in the first leg, but the performance in Milan was great. Milan scored three goals and won the match 3-0.
