Silvio Berlusconi: Visited training on Friday

Silvio Berlusconi descended on the Milanello training ground ahead of AC Milan's trip to Napoli.

Berlusconi descended on the club's Milanello training ground to get a closer look at the work being done on the eve of an important, if not crucial, week for coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Defeat to Fiorentina last weekend has left Milan languishing in 13th position in Serie A, just five points above the relegation zone and eight adrift of the top five and a place in Europe next season.

On Wednesday, they travel to face Anderlecht in the Champions League needing to avoid defeat to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stage of the competition.

First, though, they travel to Serie A high-flyers Napoli needing to put things right on the domestic front, and Allegri is confident he can turn things around in the coming weeks.

"There is still time to lift ourselves up," he said. "Between now and December 22, there are still plenty of important matches in the league and the Champions League and we are concentrating on them.

"Despite our ugly league position, we are the side with statistically the most possession, so we just need to defend better and be more alert in certain situations."
