Milan Win Berlusconi Trophy
AC Milan added another trophy this preseason defeating Juventus 4-1 to win the Berlusconi trophy.
Goals were scored for Milan by Marek Jankulovski, Filippo Inzaghi, and 2 by Massimo Ambrosini.
Not only did Juventus lose this game, but Giorgio Chiellini was injured in a collision with Gennaro Gattuso, and will likely be out for at least a month.
Clarence Seedorf played very well, and set up 2 goals. I think Seedorf's play this season will be huge to the success of Milan. With the crowded midfield of Milan (Pirlo, Gattuso, Flamini, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Ambrosini) Seedorf needs to stand out.
This game has to be good news for Milan as they haven't been playing well this preseason. You have got to figure that Milan will be much better when Pato and Ronaldinho return from the Olympics, and Kaka returns from injury.
