AC Milan president Berlusconi raps new Chelsea boss Ancelotti

AC Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi has rapped former coach Carlo Ancelotti for not listening to him last season.

He said of the new Chelsea manager: "We lost the Scudetto this season because in certain games, in the last few minutes, we didn't adopt the tactics that I advised as a former President.

"Instead we applied them in the last game and we won and that was decisive for qualification for the Champions League."

Asked about Ronaldinho's disappointing season, Berlusconi was adamant: "Often we didn't have all our champions available. Ronaldinho was used too little and this provoked a fall of morale in the player.

"But think how wonderful it is to have Ronaldinho on the pitch for 90 minutes, you buy tickets for players like him."
