Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi says his Milan side do not fear Manchester United and hopes the Rossoneri can set up a Champions League final meeting with Liverpool.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side let slip a three-goal lead before losing to Liverpool on penalties in the 2005 final and with Liverpool facing Chelsea in the other semi-final, Berlusconi hopes for a repeat of the 2005 showpiece.
“I’m optimistic as always,” Berlusconi told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Manchester aren’t favourites. We respect them a lot, but we don’t fear them, because we will start at their level.
“Against Roma, everything went in a good way for Manchester, whilst for the Giallorossi everything went in a bad way.
“But we do not have to be frightened by that 7-1 result, because Roma won the first leg.
“We have an engagement to honour in respect of our supporters – facing Liverpool to erase the loss we suffered two years ago.
“This is our dream and our aim.”
