Silvio Berlusconi questions AC Milan’s summer spree
Former AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has slammed the Rossoneri’s summer spree.
Former AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has criticized the Rossoneri’s transfer campaign – “I’ve never seen a team change 11 players…”
Yonghong Li’s consortium earlier this year bought the club from the former Italian Prime Minister and the Chinese group invested heavily in the summer.
Despite spending an incredible £175million on 11 new players in the last window Berlusconi hasn’t been impressed with their transfer strategy.
“I didn’t understand their transfer campaign,” Berlusconi revealed to La Gazzetta dello Sport via calciomercato.com
“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.”
The 81-year-old also blasted Milan’s decision to make Vincenzo Montella the head coach.
“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.”
