For Shevchenko to return would be good for Milan, he said 

Milan President Silvio Berlusconi says that the reason for Andriy Shevchenko’s transfer to Chelsea in 2006 was because he was controlled by his wife, but he admits that he wants the Ukrainian to return.

According to Goal.com, Shevchenko had a glorious seven years at Milan, before an ill-fated move to Chelsea in the summer of 2006.  

"Women are masters in certain situations,” said Berlusconi.  

“Kristen is a good girl, intelligent. But it was a misjudgement. For Shevchenko to return would be good for us.”

Milan have had a dreadful season but Berlusconi has promised that a great new team will be created.  

"The fans should rest assured, there is maximum effort in place to create another great Milan,” he said.  

“In football it is inevitable to have disappointment. After a great cycle there will always be a low wave.  

"We will begin by renewing the defence. But it is not right to talk about the market now.”

On rumours that Coach Carlo Ancelotti would be leaving in the summer, the President said: "Carletto is good. A change for the better? Who could Milan find that is better?.”

Berlusconi then explained why he believed Milan had struggled so badly this campaign.  

"The injury of Ronaldo heavily penalized us,” he said.  

“I had thought about the team with the trio of wonders, Kakà behind Pato and Ronaldo. Without Ronie it became complicated. "Inter will win the Scudetto. Roma lost a good opportunity in the derby.”
