The Milan local football derby on Saturday night saw AC Milan and FC Internazionale battle in a match that will likely mark the eventual winning championship team. AC Milan won 3-0, punishing FC Inter’s bad defence and tentative play. Current AC Milan favourite on the Italian football scene, Alexandre Pato, scored two of those three goals, apparently dedicating them to his new girlfriend, Barbara Berlusconi, who is also vice president of the club.
Berlusconi (the daughter, not Silvio), watched from the stands as Pato scored, and seemed pleased but composed. In the post-match press conference, the media asked what Pato’s gesture of grabbing his shirt around the heart meant. The diplomacy we talked about yesterday was needed as Pato was asked who he dedicated the goals to.
“To all our fans, especially those who have always come to the stadium even when things don’t go so well.”
But the journalists were obviously not content to leave it there, asking if the goals weren’t dedicated to someone special, close to him at the moment. And Pato tries answering:
The Barbara Berlusconi and Alexandre Pato love story continues after their first public kiss and more than one occasion spotted together in public. The football player and AC Milan star is finding himself under scrutiny for his relationship with the club’s young, female vice president, and the love story is the current favourite topic of gossip from Italy.
These pics show the couple out and about in Milan, as the Brazilian footballer and Silvio Berlusconi’s daughter took in a modern art exhibition in the city. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Pato made the following statements on being pressed about his separation from his first wife and current relationship with Berlusconi’s more famous daughter:
Can we please avoid this topic? [that of his divorce from model Sthefany Brito] I can say that my happiness is very important to me and that at the moment, I’m happy.
Following the question if Barbara Berlusconi is contributing to that happiness:
After breaking up with Giorgio Valagazza, Barbara Berlusconi, Silvio Berlusconi’s younger daughter, seems to have fallen for footballer Alexandre Pato. The two were spotted together in a fashionable night club in Milan a few days ago, so rumours that she and the famous AC Milan player are an item are now running rampart. At the moment neither of them has denied or confirmed these love story rumours, so stay tuned for more updates!
