AC Milan have uploaded an eight-minute video tribute to former owner and president Silvio Berlusconi on social media.
Berlusconi took over the Rossoneri when they were on the verge of bankruptcy back in 1986, and he oversaw the most successful period in the club’s history.
In a fitting way, Berlusconi began his Milan reign by flying in by helicopter to the sound of Wagner’s ‘Valkyries’ when he met 10,000 fans at a first team presentation at the Arena Civica in July 1986. A Hollywood entrance for a man who wanted nothing else for his beloved club.
Milan won 29 major honours during Berlusconi’s tenure including seven European Cup/Champions League trophies, and he brought some of the biggest names in world football to the San Siro.
