Berlusconi: Milan Scudetto “expensive, but worth it”

AC Milan owner, Silvio Berlusconi, has told Sky Italia that winning the club’s first Scudetto in seven years has been “expensive, but worth it.”
Speaking to journalists after Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Roma, the Italian prime minister said: “Finally, this Scudetto has arrived, we have done so much for it and we have pulled it off. The whole group deserves the credit for winning the Scudetto, which is also the result of making the right choices.
“We have found a coach in Massimiliano Allegri who has quickly adapted to the Milan style and the new signings such as Ibrahimovic, Boateng and van Bommel have been decisive.
“Remember that the squad is well-equipped and it allowed us to weather difficult moments in the season when we were hit by injuries.
“Obviously, all this has cost a lot. To win in football, you need to spend money and make the right choices, especially in the European field, but we are in a good position to be able to do well in Europe as well next season.”

Coach Allegri, who had never previously managed a big club before joining Milan last June, said the Rossoneri needed to continue to improve if they were to challenge for the title again next season: “To win in my first season is very satisfying. I want to thank the president for giving me such a strong squad. For the future, we need to improve an already strong squad and the president has said he will give us a present and we’re all happy.”
Milan have been imperious all season long; losing only four games and conceding the fewer amount of goals in Serie A. And with two games still remaining, look set to beat Inter’s points total from last year. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
