Capello: I told Berlusconi Ronaldo would flop at AC Milan

Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello admits he urged the club not to sign Ronaldo Nazario.

Capello reveals his advice was ignored by then Milan president Silvio Berlusconi.

He recalled to Sky Italia of the 2007 deal: "Berlusconi wanted to buy him to the point that he phoned me wondering what I thought of him.

"I told him that in my opinion it was wrong to make his purchase, because in my opinion he could never do it...

"Then the day after he formalized his transfer."
