Silvio Berlusconi returns to Italian football

    The former AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has returned to the world of football after purchasing the Italian Serie C outfit Monza.About 18 months ago, a three-time Italian president sold his beloved AC Milan to a Chinese-led consortium, announcing his retirement from football. His closest associate and former Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani who also left the club after the sale is now appointed Monza’s CEO. During Berlusconi’s reign that lasted for 31 years, the Rossoneri have won 29 trophies, including five Champions League titles, which made the 81-year-old billionaire the most successful president in the history of Serie A.Since the end of the Berlusconi era, the 18-time Serie A champions have struggled to find the financial stability that led to another takeover, this time by U.S.-based hedge fund Elliott Management.Although the Biancorossi have never reached the Italian top-flight, under the new management, they can aim high. As for the fallen Milanese giants, it seems they are miles away from bringing the glory days back to the Stadio San Siro.
