‘Ibrahimovic gave me balls I dreamed of at AC Milan’ – Kevin-Prince Boateng

The Ghanaian and Swedish forwards featured prominently during the Rossoneri's Serie A title-winning campaign in 2011 Kevin-Prince Boateng has hailed the influence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at AC Milan, claiming the Swede gave him the "balls he dreamed of." Ibrahimovic is at Milan for the second time after shining during the 2010-2011 Serie A-winning season alongside Boateng. Both men were summer recruits that year, and had a hand in a combined 31 top-flight goals. Boateng has advised Milan to keep hold of Ibra who is on a short-term contract.

Berlusconi Interested In Buying Serie C Club Monza

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who sold AC Milan after a trophy-laden three decades under his ownership a year ago, could be set to return to football by buying Serie C side Monza, according to press reports in Italy on Thursday.

The report said the deal could be completed by the end of September. Monza president Nicola Colombo told the newspape...

Silvio Berlusconi: Migrants Rob Banks And Are A Social Time Bomb

Silvio Berlusconi has claimed that 600,000 illegal migrants in Italy are a “social bomb ready to go off” after a Nigerian asylum seeker was arrested for killing an Italian woman. The thousands of migrants, the former prime minister claimed, were living “hand to mouth or from crime”, and he suggested that they were responsible for most bank robberies.

Ricardo Rodriguez Completes Move To AC Milan From Wolfsburg

Full-back Ricardo Rodriguez has signed a four-year deal with AC Milan after completing a €17 million move from Wolfsburg, the clubs announced on Thursday. The 24-year-old becomes the Rossoneri’s third new signing this summer, and third since the end of Silvio Berlusconi’s near 31-year reign as club owner, joining Mateo Musacchio and Franck Kessie at the disposal of coach Vincenzo Montella next season. The Switzerland international had arrived in Milan for medical exams earlier in the week. “We need players who will show a certain enthusiasm for this shirt, which is why the first thing we do after the medical is give a tour of the trophy room,” said director Massimiliano Mirabelli.
