(ANSA) - Milan, July 31 - Silvio Berlusconi admitted on
Tuesday that hard economic times means he cannot spend money to
bring soccer's top talent to AC Milan like he did in the glory
years of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
"The economic situation does not allows greater spending,"
ex-premier Berlusconi, the club's owner, told its in-house TV
channel.
He was explaining the club's transfer-market strategy in
the face of what he called an unprecedented economic crisis.
"We must build a large team with young talent," he said.
"Barcelona have done so. I remind everyone that the AC
Milan started just like this".
Berlusconi said he was optimistic about creating the
winning team, despite the controversial recent sale of their
best players, Brazil defender Thiago Silva and Sweden forward
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, to Paris Saint-Germain.
And he defended those sales as being essential to stabilize
the club's finances.
"We did not want give them both away...(but) with this
sacrifice, it was possible to put the accounts in order for next
three to four years.
"My heart was crying, but I remain convinced we have very
good players at home".
