Monza have announced that former Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has completed his takeover of the Serie C club.
Berlusconi’s purchase comes a day before his 82nd birthday and marks an end to weeks of speculation, while he is joined at Monza by long-time aide Adriano Galliani.
A Press release read: “Fininvest SpA has today finalised the 100% acquisition of SS Monza 1912.
“The Shareholders’ Meeting also approved the appointment of a new Board of Directors, composed of Nicola Colombo (President), Paolo Berlusconi, Adriano Galliani, Roberto Mazzo and Danilo Pellegrino.
“The Board also appointed Adriano Galliani as CEO of the club.”
The former Prime Minister of Italy owned Milan for 31 years until selling up in 2017, with Galliani serving as CEO for the entirety of that time and the Rossoneri going on to win five European Cups, as well as eight Serie A titles.
