Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has again backed under-fire coach Carlo Ancelotti despite the club’s recent problems and has reiterated his desire to bring back Andrii Shevchenko.
Milan were knocked out of the Champions League by Arsenal last month and lie sixth in Serie A, four points adrift of a Champions League spot for next season.
“Carletto is going very well,” Berlusconi told Tuesday’s Gazzetta dello Sport.
“You change in order to improve. For Milan who could I find better?”
Meanwhile, Ukrainian striker Shevchenko, who enjoyed had seven productive seasons at Milan before leaving for Chelsea in 2006, would still be welcome back at the club, claims Berlusconi.
“It would be good for Shevchenko to return to us,” he said.
With Ronaldo being ruled out with a long-term knee injury, there have been reports that the Brazilian’s career is over. However, Berlusconi said he was ready to offer him a new contract.
“If he has the will, he will return. I would like to give him a performance-related contract in order to motivate him,” he said.
