Berlusconi names former Milan player Brocchi as Monza coach

MONZA, Italy — Silvio Berlusconi has been reunited with Cristian Brocchi after appointing the former AC Milan player and manager as coach of third-division Monza.

Berlusconi's company took over Monza last month, less than 18 months after selling Milan.

Monza announced on Monday that it had fired Marco Zaffaroni and replaced him with the 42-year-old Brocchi.

Having won its first three matches of the season, Monza is without a victory since Berlusconi's takeover — losing three and drawing the other two.

Brocchi made 135 appearances for Milan in two spells with the Serie A club.

He was the youth coach at Milan for nearly two years before being promoted to the first team when Sinisa Mihajlovic was sacked in April 2016.

Brocchi won two of his seven matches in charge, losing three and drawing the other two.

He went on to serve as coach at second-division Brescia and assistant coach at Chinese side Jiangsu Suning.
