Berlusconi blasts new AC Milan ownership and coach Montella

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has revealed his unhappiness regarding the situation surrounding the Rossoneri.

The Italian politician, who was at the helm for over 30 years with Milan, believes that the new ownership has made a series of mistakes.

In addition, Berlusconi stuck the boot into boss Vincenzo Montella, questioning his technical and tactical decisions.

“I didn’t understand their transfer campaign,” Berlusconi admitted to Corriere della Sera.

“I’ve never seen a team change 11 players. With all that money, you couldn’t buy a top player?

“Explain to me how Suso and [Giacomo] Bonaventura stay on the bench when they’re the two most technically gifted players?

“They gave the captain’s armband to a player [Leonardo Bonucci] who was a symbol of Juventus for years. [Riccardo] Montolivo is there, the armband was entrusted to him.”

Berlusconi also revealed that he never wanted to hire Montella as AC Milan manager.

“I wanted [Cristian] Brocchi to stay on the bench, but I was in a hospital bed between life and death and they told me Montella.”
