Berlusconi’s football team in deep crisis

A.C. Milan, Berlusconi’s football team, was thrown out of the Italy Cup after months of disappointing performances in the Italian Premier League.

Mr Berlusconi was even rumored to be willing to sell the team, but this was denied.

Beside sport, the crisis of Milan has also some political and economic significance, since it is yet another signal of the frail health of Mr Berlusconi’s empire. This was reportedly a major factor in making Mr Berlusconi so complacent with Prime Minister Matteo Renzi: a hostile Government could be the coup de grace for his enterprises.

However, Mr Berlusconi has so far refused to vote Mr Renzi’s presidential candidate, the constitutional judge Sergio Mattarella.
