AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is excited about the potential of his current team.

Milan defeated Barcelona 2-0 in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday.

"Last night, without too much effort, we beat Barcelona - the best team in the world," said Berlusconi.

"Today we are third in the League and can go even further.

"A few weeks after the start of the season this team was given up for dead - some even said we'd struggle to survive.

"But those people should have perhaps been a little more cautious with their predictions."
