Massimiliano Allegri says "it is a shame about results" as speculation in Italy intensifies over the future of the AC Milan coach.

The Rossoneri lost 3-1 to Fiorentina on Sunday, comprehensively outplayed by Vincenzo Montella's side just days after Adriano Galliani praised the former Roma striker's approach to coaching.
The Milan vice-president refused to speak to the press following the game and his silence has been taken as a sign that Allegri's time at the club is coming to an end.
Galliani rarely misses an opportunity to speak to reporters and has been a staunch supporter of Allegri despite Milan losing six times in the opening twelve rounds of the Serie A season. That has led many on the peninsula to tip assistant coach Mauro Tassotti as a replacement, with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming "Allegri hanging by a thread, Galliani and Berlusconi will decide today" on Monday's front page.
Allegri himself barely acknowledged the problems with some strange post-match comments in which he claimed his side were on par with their opponents despite the one-sided nature of the defeat.
He told Sky Italia: "The Viola ran hard and pressed us around the field, but we were too deep and feel regret because they didn't really have many chances aside from the ones we gave them."
"Sometimes we have to play badly and try to get a result anyway. We ought to avoid the slips in concentration. It's a shame about the results, as we could've gone up to sixth place today and did not manage it."
