Milan struggled in the early stages of this season following the departure, and failure to replace, of their top two players, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, during the summer.

The Rossoneri only managed to pick up a measly 11 points in their first 10 games and calls for the resignation of Allegri from frustrated fans grew as a lacklustre Milan side failed to pull themselves out from the bottom half of the table.

However, Milan appear to have turned the corner in recent times with the Rossoneri stringing together some positive results, and their 1-0 win over Juventus over the weekend was undoubtedly the highlight of their season thus far.

According to Amelia, the main reason why his side have improved is down to Allegri finally finding out what the best formation to suit the players in the team.

"I think our coach knows exactly what he wants, I understand that he thinks that the right formation for us and our future is a 4-3-3," Amelia was quoted as saying by the official Milan website.

"In previous matches he changed a few things to test out our new players but now we are going ahead with this formation towards our true identity. 

"He knows exactly what he needs to do. 

"I would like to say one thing and that is that I was very happy to see the stadium so full and passionate on Sunday."

The 30-year-old custodian also highlighted the importance of having senior players in the team to guide the inexperienced members of the squad.

"Us veterans have always tried to keep that winning mentality going during the training sessions," Amelia added.

"That mentality that has always made Milan stand apart from other clubs: the desire to win, the desire to improve, always thinking about the group ahead of the individual which is something the President is keen to promote from top to bottom."

Milan, currently ninth in the Serie A, will clash with Catania at the Stadio Angelo Massimino on Friday.
