MILANELLO – AC Milan President Silvio Berlusconi was at Milanello on Friday for an important and intense day at the club’s training centre.

The President arrived for what was his 14th visit of the season at just after 13.30 in an Audi. His daughter and CEO Barbara Berlusconi arrived shortly before and she greeted the sponsor-companies present for the day by saying: “We really cared about spending this day with you, especially my father.”

Following that, Barbara Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani headed over to the “Claudio Lippi” Conference Room where AC Milan’s commercial director Jaap Kalma spoke to the club’s sponsor-companies before lunch. The theme of the presentation was Milan’s future commercial strategies. Head coach Filippo Inzaghi was also on hand in addition to Barbara Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani.

Lunch was then served at 14.45 with Silvio Berlusconi sitting at the centre of the table. Before sitting down for his lunch however, the President spoke to the Milan players and he was full of praise following the team’s win in the last round against Udinese: “You made a good improvement. Last Sunday, myself and the other Milan fans re-found our Milan, that attacks, that imposes its game, that scores and that stands out for its great strength, great desire and great dynamism. Let’s continue on this path, there will be glory for everyone. You’re all considered of the highest level, we’re happy with all of you and with the squad that we have.”

Silvio Berlusconi left Milanello at 16.20.
