AC Milan Owner Silvio Berlusconi has hailed his club in their 4-0 victory against Arsenal in the Champions League last 16 first leg last night.
AC Milan battered a very poor Arsenal side in the first-leg at the San Siro, which has pretty much put Milan in the quarter-final stages of the competition. The former Italian prime minister was very pleased and could not hide his joy after the match.
Berlusconi told Sky Sport Italia – “You have to be happy when you win so convincingly. It was a great performance, made of all beautiful things.”
Berlusconi then revealed he was never that keen on signing Man City’s wantaway striker Carlos Tevez, despite Adriano Galliani’s pursuit of the attacker in January, claiming Massimiliano Allegri has lots of options in attack.
He continued – “I never called for the arrival of Tevez. We have the boy by the name of Egypt (El Shaarawy), and then we took the striker from Catania (Maxi Lopez), who is a true centre forward; combative, a cool guy.”
The 75-year-old concluded by expressing his admiration for current European champions Barcelona, before sending a warning shot to league rivals Juventus, whom he feels are inferior to Milan.
“I like the game exhibited by Barcelona. I prefer Barca to Real Madrid, despite the latter being ahead in La Liga. As a team, we are superior to Juventus,” Berlusconi boasted.
