AC Milan are reportedly looking to go under foreign ownership just like their arch rivals Inter Milan.
Former president Massimo Moratti sold Inter a few years ago and the club have now gone completely under the hands of foreign owners. Being on the by a rich benefactor in various parts of the world is a phenomenon that seems to be growing in Italy. England went under such a revolution when Roman Abramovich took control of Chelsea in 2003. However, Milan manager Cristian Brocchi is hoping that owner Silvio Berlusconi does not sell the club, but admits that he cannot do anything about it.
The health of the former Italian Prime Minister has been extremely poor in recent times. He has just been admitted in hospital with a severe heart problem. It is rumoured that Milan, which remains his prized asset, could be sold before the lifetime of Berlusconi. Even though his daughter is part of the club, they have been criticised in his recent years for failing to put in adequate money to ensure that the club remained as one of the top guns in world football. Milan are no longer the top in world football. In fact, they have slipped down the ladder at Italian level as well.
“I have a lot of desire and determination. It’s a dream for me, but at the same time I want to prove that I can do something good.I’m rooting for Berlusconi to not sell the club, not just for my fate, but for what he’s done in the history of this club. Seeing people come in who don’t know what’s been done over the last 30 years would be difficult,” saidBrocchi. The future of managerBrocchi will come under greater speculation is the club is sold to a new owner.
