For the first time, Monza was promoted to Serie B on Monday since selling AC Milan after its new team, Silvio Berlusconi is watching for a return to the top table of Italian football.
On Monday the Italian Football Federation made a decision to end the regular Serie C season and promote the top team from each of the three groups in the division. Monza was one of three clubs that moved up to second-tier alongside Vicenza and Reggina.
“Monza will create a squad ready to go to the top of Serie B.” Berlusconi’s saying was quoted by the local newspaper Il Cittadino.
“Promotion to Serie A will vary depending on a number of factors, some of which are unpredictable, but we know some very well and we will try to get the most out of it.”
The team won five European Cups and eight Serie A titles when Berlusconi had owned AC Milan for more than 30 years.
