AC Milan patron Berlusconi admits distancing himself from club

AC Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi admits the club needs 'looking after'. He was sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud, but it was reduced to one year due to a legal loophole and he won't actually have to serve any time until the lengthy appeals process has concluded.

"I wanted to dedicate myself to a football club that needs to be looked after at the moment," he said in a Press conference.

"As you know, aside from politics I also deal with the Luigi Berlusconi Foundation, whose mission it is to build hospitals for children around the world.

"I will have to spread my attention around all these different directions, because I intend to dedicate most of my time to my country and continuing the process of modernisation and change."
