AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi insists he has total faith in vice-president Adriano Galliani.

Galliani's job was the subject of intense speculation yesterday.

"I take this opportunity to reiterate my total faith in Adriano Galliani," Berlusconi declared. "There have been some articles relating to Milan and its structure. These articles are devoid of any truth.

"He is one of the greatest men in the game and has been my friend for 30 years. I have unconditional professional respect for him."
