AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi believes Riccardo Montolivo can match the exploits of Andrea Pirlo.

Pirlo is now starring with Juventus.

"I really like Riccardo Montolivo, as I believe he is the Andrea Pirlo of today and tomorrow. He also plays well to help out the defence and is a lovely guy with an important presence in the locker room," said Berlusconi.
