Berlusconi: I am a fan of Montella

The former Italy prime minister says he is a big fan of the 39-year-old but wouldn't say if he thinks he would like to bring him to San Siro

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi says he is an admirer of Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella.

The 39-year-old has guided Fiorentina to a Europa League spot in each of his two seasons in charge, leading them to the round of 16 in the competition this term.

And Berlusconi says he likes the former Roma striker, although he stopped short of saying he would consider him for the Milan job, insisting the club will discuss Clarence Seedorf's position at the end of the season.

"I think he has done well with Fiorentina and I personally think he is very nice," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.   

"We will wait for the end of the season and then, as has always been the case at Milan, we will decide together with the coaches, who are responsible for the team, and with the board of directors."

The former Italy Prime Minister says the Rossoneri will be his main priority when he brings an end to his political career and stressed he has no intention of selling the club, but feels it will be hard for them to get back among the world's elite again.

"When I will finish my political activity I will work directly for Milan, a club that is still one of the most successful teams in the world."

"No, I don't think [I will sell the club]. Although the club has a lot of problems and it is difficult to compete on the international scene with the money from the Arabs, I think teams like PSG are owned by those who have wealth without limits."
