Silvio Berlusconi says he was more thrilled for Monza’s promotion to Serie A than for any trophy won with Milan: ‘It was unique…’
Monza were promoted to Serie A for the first time in history last season and will meet Milan in Italy’s top flight in 2022-23.
“I am still the most winning football president in the world, thanks to my Milan. But this time, thanks to Adriano Galliani, who convinced me to take on this new adventure three years ago in Serie C, we made something extraordinary: give a place like Monza a spot they deserve in Serie A,” Berlusconi said on Saturday, during a political rally in Monza, as quoted by Calciomercato.com.
“Personally, I want to be the protagonist. Perhaps, not in the first season, but I want to compete with the top clubs. You know that I’ve won everything with Milan, but the emotions felt during the days of Monza’s promotion were something unique, superior to any success obtained with the Rossoneri, with who I still have a close bond.”
The Rossoneri will meet Berlusconi’s new team in October at San Siro and in February in Monza.
