Silvio Berlusconi expressed his pride at joining Santiago Bernabeu as the most successful presidents in world football following AC Milan's Supercoppa Italiana triumph. Milan >got the better of Juventus in a penalty shoot-out in Doha last week, having earlier beaten the Serie A champion in the league back in October.

And Berlusconi claimed that success took him level with former Real Madrid president Bernabeu. He told Libero: "AC Milan took home another trophy, the Supercoppa Italiana, and with that I joined Santiago Bernabeu, the legendary Real Madrid president. We are the two club presidents who have won the most in the history of world football. I do not think I can complain."

Berlusconi also addressed the further delay in the takeover of Milan by Fininvest and Sino-Europe Sports, which will now have to wait until March 3 to be completed. "The negotiation has already reached a successful outcome," he added.

"We have only asked for more time for technical and bureaucratic reasons."
