Berlusconi tactics for Milan-Barca

President Silvio Berlusconi’s “tactical suggestions” were behind Milan’s 1-1 draw with Barcelona, claimed his daughter.

Last night the Rossoneri largely neutralised the Blaugrana in their Champions League encounter, moving to a 4-3-3 with no recognised strikers.

“My father is happy, as some of the tactical suggestions he gave to Massimiliano Allegri were received,” Barbara Berlusconi told ANSA news agency.

She is also on the Board of Directors at the club and was until a few months ago the girlfriend of Alexandre Pato.

“The performance was decent, made of heart and character. Now we need the right mentality in the next games, especially in Glasgow, as it’s going to be a cauldron there.”

Milan’s next Champions League fixture is away to Barcelona on November 6, then at Celtic Park on November 26.

They have five points compared to Barcelona’s seven and Celtic on three.
