AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi says Italy's biggest clubs should breakaway from the rest of Serie A and create their own super league.

Berlusconi declared: "The great sides should make their own championship. When you invest a lot in a team it's unthinkable to make them play against a team from the provinces whose stadium, usually with a capacity for 20,000 people, is inevitably half-empty."

The new Italy PM also told Radio Radio: "When there are great teams playing the stadiums are always full and TV audiences are massive. Only with great teams can we become protagonists in Europe again."
