AC Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi insists the current squad is strong enough to compete for the big titles. The Italy PM has been criticised by fans for not making more money available for new signings in recent years.

"The squad is good enough and can compete with everyone else," he declared.

"I ask any of you to name a team which has more class than ours given that we have Ronaldinho, Andrea Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf and Alexandre Pato.

"You can't win always, but we haven't done too badly over the last few years. We are second behind a very rich Inter, but ahead of Roma.

"No family in Italy has invested as much money as the Berlusconi one. In the last seven years, we have added €461m - more than €60m a year. In 25 years I have invested a thousand million.

"If there is a buyer with the passion that my family have had for the last 25 years then I would consider selling, but I haven't found that person. Therefore I will keep Milan with passion."
