AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani expects Silvio Berlusconi to become more involved with the club.

Galliani confirmed that Berlusconi is likely to return to an official capacity as club President in the near future after resigning as Italian Prime Minister on Sunday.

"Frankly, I never realised that he had stopped. A football team is not a company, it is something that concerns the all different feelings. Berlusconi was President and will return to being President, but to me he has never stopped, he has always been close.

"I hope that he will formally decide to take back the Presidency of Milan. The trophies Milan have won have always been with Berlusconi as President, since we are in the race for the Champions League we hope he comes back.

"His passion has always been the same, both as President and not."
