Berlusconi: 'Milan should play in Cagliari'

Milan President Silvio Berlusconi wants the Lega Calcio to move their game with Cagliari back to the Is Arenas rather than Turin.

The Cagliari home tie was switched to the Stadio Olimpico in Turin today after the Is Arenas again failed security checks.

“It is a festival of football, so it’s only right that it should be played at the Is Arenas,” Milan President Berlusconi told Videolina television.

“Milan fans have always had an ideal rapport with Cagliari supporters. I don’t remember a single incident of unpleasantness.

“I really can’t see how they can give the all-clear for Napoli to play here, but not Milan. After all, Milan fans are considered the best behaved in Italy, after those of Cagliari, of course.

“I doubt this fixture could create any disorder. I hope Milan can play their game in Sardinia.”

The match is set to kick off at 14.00 GMT on Sunday, but Cagliari are reportedly prepared to boycott it.

The official Cagliari website continues to be updated with absolutely no mention of this change of venue.
