Silvio Berlusconi believes AC Milan are better than Barcelona
A message of hope has arrived from the top as the team leader insists winning everything is on the agenda this season
AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi insists his club are stronger than European champions Barcelona as he targets silverware in all competitions this term.
Berlusconi, who celebrates his 75th birthday on Thursday, is confident his men can win the Champions League following their 2-0 Group H win over Viktoria Plzen.
The Italian supremo believes his team can recapture past glories in Europe and finish ahead of group rivals Barcelona.
Milan have struggled to make an impact in the prestigious tournament in recent years and last season they crumbled in the last 16, losing to Premier League side Tottenham. But Berlusconi feels things are different now.
"This season we will win everything, we are stronger than Barcelona," he told Sky Sport Italia.
Milan last lifted the Champions League trophy in the 2006-07 campaign.
