Bullish Berlusconi demands Juventus trophies
ROME, May 14 (Reuters) - AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi said on Sunday his soccer club should be awarded league titles that went or are set to go to Juventus, due to match fixing allegations, news agency ANSA reported.
'We demand they give us back the two league titles that are our due. We're tired of suffering injustice,' the Milan proprietor, who is also Italy's outgoing prime minister, was quoted as saying as he headed to watch his team play AS Roma.
Both Milan and Juventus have officials under investigation in fraud probes that have rocked the country's soccer elite, but out of the four clubs that have so far been named, league champions Juve have come under the greatest scrutiny.
AC Milan came second to Juve in last year's Seria A championship and are likely to do so again this year.
Berlusconi's comment came moments before the kickoff of matches that could decide this year's title. If Juventus avoid a defeat at Reggina they will take the trophy for the second year running.
