Berlusconi celebrates: AC Milan now world's most successful club

"We are satisfied with the victory. Now we are the most successful club in the world with more silverware than any other, overtaking Boca Juniors," said Berlusconi after celebrating last night's 3-1 win.

The Rossoneri will take on Boca Juniors for the Club World Cup - formerly known as the Intercontinental Cup - in Tokyo in December.

"I am also now the most successful President in the history of Milan. I am happy about that."

However, the celebrations at the Stade Louis II in Monaco were muted following the death of Sevilla player Antonio Puerta earlier this week.

"The atmosphere within the squad and the locker room was very different. One could not sense that competitive fire that is usually present in a Final and it was evident in the first half on the field, too."

Sevilla were leading 1-0 at the break, but Milan rediscovered their form in the second period, overturning the result with Pippo Inzaghi, Marek Jankulovski and Kaka.

"When a colleague dies it affects us all in this sport, especially the players," added Berlusconi. "Of course we dedicate the trophy to Puerta."
