MILAN, Italy -- AC Milan fired Massimiliano Allegri and put former assistant coach Mauro Tassotti temporarily in charge on Monday, a day after an embarrassing 4-3 loss at promoted Sassuolo. Vontaze Burfict Jersey . Langishing in 11th place -- six points above the relegation zone -- Milan announced the move on its website. Former Milan players Clarence Seedorf and Filippo Inzaghi were reportedly the leading candidates to replace Allegri on a full-time basis. The 37-year-old Seedorf is currently playing for Botafogo in Brazil while the 40-year-old Inzaghi is coaching Milans youth squad. Seedorf has an escape clause in his contract that would let him leave Botafogo without any penalty as long as he doesnt play for another club. Milan has won only five of 19 matches this season and Allegri had already announced over the winter break that he would leave at the end of the season. But the loss to Sassuolo, which got four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi, hastened his departure. The Sassuolo game marked the debut of recently signed forward Keisuke Honda, and Milan was hoping that the Japan international would lead the squad to a second-half surge the way Mario Balotelli did last season. But as soon as the match ended, Milan general manager Barbara Berlusconi said the loss highlighted the need for urgent change. Allegri took over Milan in 2010 and won Serie A in his first season then finished second and third the past two years. Still, he never became a favourite of club owner Silvio Berlusconi. The only other trophy Allegri won with Milan was the 2011 Italian Super Cup. However, Milan was the only Italian club to reach the knockout stage of this seasons Champions League, and will face Atletico Madrid next month. The 53-year-old Tassotti is a long-time Milan assistant who had a 17-year playing career with the club. Milans next match is against Serie B side Spezia on Wednesday in the Italian Cup. Then on Sunday, the Rossoneri face fifth-place Hellas Verona. Both matches are at the San Siro. There has also been speculation that Milan would like to sign Italy coach Cesare Prandelli, whose contract with the national team expires after this years World Cup. Allegris contract was due to expire at the end of this season. Its the seventh coaching change in Serie A this season. The other coaches fired were Fabio Liverani (Genoa), Rolando Maran (Catania), Delio Rossi (Sampdoria), Giuseppe Sannino (Chievo Verona), Vladimir Petkovic (Lazio) and Stefano Pioli (Bologna). An eighth manager, Davide Nicola, was fired by Livorno later Monday. Clint Boling Jersey .

Or how his team has defended Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Or just about anything that has happened on the court in the first-round playoff series.

He looked very comfortable Wednesday night. Konerko had a big three-run double and Gordon Beckham homered for the second straight game, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sliding Chicago Cubs. TORONTO -- Kieran Crowley wanted a better performance from Canada in Saturdays crucial Rugby World Cup qualifier against the United States. The Canadian head coach didnt get it, but his team will still be heading to England in two years time. James Pritchard scored eight points as a sluggish Canada clinched a spot in the 2015 Rugby World Cup with a hard-fought 13-11 victory over the U.S. "It was ugly," Crowley said bluntly. "But it was a win." Jason Marshall also had a try for the Canadians, who took the two-match total-points qualifying series 40-20 after last weekends 27-9 victory over in Charleston, S.C. Despite the lopsided scoreline in the first leg, Crowley wasnt happy with Canadas showing and said in the leadup to Saturdays match at BMO Field that he expected more. But an American team that had its pride damaged in a disappointing home loss seven days earlier came out strong and outplayed Canada for long stretches, especially in the first half. Pritchard agreed with Crowleys assessment of Canadas outing. "We came out here wanting to make a statement showing how far weve come with Canadian rugby," said Pritchard, the countrys all-time leading scorer. "Today we got a win, we did our job, we qualified for the World Cup, but it was anything but pretty. "Its not too often we get to play these big games at a stadium like this. Wed been gearing it up for it so much this week that I think the occasion might have got to a few of us." Takudzwa Ngwenya had the only try for the Americans, while Chris Wyles added six points on two penalty kicks. The U.S. still has two cracks at making the tournament, including a two-match series with Uruguay. "Our backs were against the wall. We knew we had to come out and prove something to ourselves, to prove that we could play the game and we did," American head coach Mike Tolkin said. "We played with guts, we played with determination." The Canadians, who are ranked 14th in the world by the International Rugby Board, join 12 countries that have already qualified automatically for the World Cup in 2015 and will slot into Pool D alongside France, Ireland, Italy and another European qualifier. With the sights and sounds of the Canadian National Exhibition serving as Saturdays backdrop, the game between the North American rivals lacked flow for long stretches. Tied 8-8 at halftime, Wyles had a chance to put the Americans in front, but missed a penalty kick in the 47th minute The Canadians then grabbed the lead when Marshall finished off a good move by just getting the ball over the American line in the 60th minute, but Pritchard missed the conversion for just a five-point edge. Wyles cut Canadas advantage to two at 13-11 in the 67th minute with his second penalty kick of the afternoon and had a chance to give the Americans a late lead, but he missed a difficult penalty in the 79th minute froom the left-hand side. Nick Vigil Jersey. "Its always a big battle against (the U.S.)," Canadian captain Aaron Carpenter said. "We know what theyre going to bring and they brought it today. I thought they were a little bit light last week in South Carolina. "Thats what we expected from them last week and we got it this week." The Canadians got off to a quick start in last Saturdays match south of the border but were hemmed in their own end early by a determined American team, which is ranked 18th in the world. The U.S. opened the scoring in the 14th minute after some sustained pressure paid off with a try down the left side from Ngwenya, who faked a pitch before gliding across the line and touching down for a 5-0 lead. But Wyles missed the conversion for an American team that came in already facing a huge deficit. Pritchard calmed Canadian nerves somewhat by getting his team on the board in the 21st minute with a penalty kick from centre field that split the uprights. The Australian-born fullback, who scored 12 points in the opening leg, then gave the home side the lead with a try two minutes later. Ciaran Hearn took a pass on the right before finding Pritchard, who wove his way into the American end untouched for an 8-5 lead before missing the conversion attempt. "Hes such an experienced player. Hes been around for so long," Crowley said of Pritchard. "Hell be the first to say he gets those points on the back of what the teams putting up." Wyles added a penalty kick on the final play of the first half to send the teams to the locker-room tied 8-8. "Tough victory," Carpenter said. "They came out with everything and we battled all 80 minutes and thankfully we stuck together long enough to pull out a victory. "Were just happy that weve qualified and get to go where we want."
