BARBARA BERLUSCONI says her father would have liked Milan to play more like the Catalans.
Milan held Barcelona on Wednesday thanks to an excellent game from their defense, and the final 0-0 result is good for both sides as Milan do not have to beat Barca at the Camp Nou now in order to progress.
Silvio Berlusconi was in the stadium, and the man who returned on Thursday to his role as the ‘Honorary President’ of Milan, was not very much thrilled with how Milan played in the game at the San Siro stadium.
“My father likes how Barcelona play football and he’d like Milan to do the same, but we have different types of players,” explained Silvio’s daughter and board member Barbara to il Corriere dello Sport. “He wasn’t angry after the game, he was satisfied with the result, he just wanted to make some tactical points.
“Now we can do well at the Nou Camp in the return leg. We’ll get some players back and we can get the result that we need.” Milan will have Mark Van Bommel, Ignazio Abate and maybe even Pato for Tuesday.
Milan are top of the league, with a 4-point lead over Juventus. If Milan win the Scudetto, it’ll be Silvio’s 9th.
