Berlusconi: Milan were owed the penalty

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has said his team’s contentious last-minute penalty against Udinese at the San Siro was “owed”.

The Rossoneri were given the spot kick which gave them a 2-1 victory over the Zebrette and the former Italian prime minister admits it was a soft award.

“The decision was very doubtful, but it was a pleasure for all Milan fans to get the decision.”

Milan’s winning goal came from new €22 million signing Mario Balotelli.

It was his second strike on a impressive debut and Berlusconi was clearly delighted with the immediate impact his January purchase made.

He added: “Balotelli? I could not sleep after his goals.”
