Wanted To Bring Guardiola To AC Milan, Says Club Owner Berlusconi

Silvio Berlusconi

club owner Silvio Berlusconi asserted that he did his best to bring legendary manager to his club when Pep, the former manager was working wonders at .

Guardiola by far has been the most successful manager at Barcelona. His four-year campaign at Camp Nou was like a dream ride for the fans. Pep managed to make Barcelona a footballing superpower with two Champions League, three , two club World Cups, two European Supercups, one Copa del Rey and three Spanish Supercups.

Pep moved to in 2013 and helped the German Giants to win three back to back titles. The Spanish coach will now take control over the premier league club . However the AC Milan is all praise about Pep’s incredible journey with Barcelona.

“As a coach, I was courting Guardiola at Barcelona,” Berlusconi was quoted as saying by Italian television TeleLombardia on Monday.


“He then became coach of Bayern – but the game expressed at Barcelona was what satisfied me more.” the 79-year-old said.

According to Berlusconi too much flow of money in and increasing demands of the players have prevented the club from signing top notch players of the world in the recent past.

AC Milan’s record breaking transfer was in the year 19192 when they signed Gianluigi Lentini for 13 million pounds ($18.9 million).

“The names are known, but the demands are there to show how football now has become like a kind of monopoly. These top figures have no connection with what are reasonable prices,” Berlusconi concluded.
