Three Berlusconi family members now involved in AC Milan

9:54 am on 21 April 2011

The Berlusconis know how to keep it in the family - the daughter of the Italian Prime Minister is the latest addition to AC Milan's board of directors.

Barbara Berlusconi joins her father Silvio Berlusconi, who is the club president and his brother Paolo - also on Milan's board.

The club's board approved the move yesterday raising the number of members from 12 to 13.

A fixture at Milan's recent matches, Barbara Berlusconi has been romantically linked to one of the team's standout players, Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato.

Club vice president Adriano Galliani says the move "is a sign of the Berlusconi family's renewed dedication" to Milan.

With five rounds remaining in Serie A, Milan holds a six-point lead over Napoli and appears on course for its 18th title.
