Silvio Berlusconi won’t sell Milan, will decide Clarence Seedorf’s future at the end of the season and would take Mario Balotelli to the World Cup.

The club President and former Italian Prime Minister considered a number of issues relating to the Rossoneri this week in an interview with Capital Radio, beginning with continued speculation that he is in talks to sell a majority shareholding of the club.

“No I don’t think so, in spite of a football team that faces many difficulties on the international scene where the protagonists are those who have Arabic money and it is difficult to compete against,” Berlusconi has made clear.

“I think that teams like PSG are owned by those who have wealth without limits.”

Rumours continue to surround Milan’s intentions on the bench in the summer, with it generally assumed now that Clarence Seedorf will be leaving as Coach, just six months into his tenure.

“We will decide together, at a meeting of the board at the end of the season. Clarence has a contract that says he will be with us for the next two years.”

Mario Balotelli has come under scrutiny of late for his performances on the pitch and recent outburst on live television.

 “I would take him to the World Cup, but the CT is preparing to do a great job, to persuade him on his position on the field. We, at Milan, have not succeeded.”

Berlusconi was asked for further comment on the scenes before and after the Coppa Italia Final in Rome.

“I have never seen a situation like that and I am not sure that even the Napoli President had this in mind.

“There are those who believe in and identify with their team and do so with real passion. In the papers these days, you have the Napoli ultras as violent, or even criminals, we must definitely distinguish.

“The ultras, for example at Milan, are absolutely people with a spirit that is simple, with a real passion for their team.

“They identify with their team, with players who become their heroes. Indeed, the matches in football are a metaphor for them.”
