MILAN -- Silvio Berlusconi would stay on as honorary president at AC Milan after selling the club to Chinese investors if he can retain powers impacting the squad. Roma Luca Pellegrini Jersey .I would have to have some abilities to intervene, like yes or no on buying or selling players or on playing formations, Berlusconi told reporters early Monday following Milans 2-2 draw with Inter in the city derby, confirming that the Chinese group offered him the position.If Im assured of that Ill try to accept even the honorary presidency, he added.The closing for the club sale is slated for Dec. 13.The deal with the Chinese group, which includes the participation of a Chinese state investment fund, values Milan at 740 million euros (about $800 million).Whether he becomes honorary president or not, it was likely Berlusconis final derby as Milans owner and the Rossoneri fans paid tribute in their pre-match choreography, unveiling a giant banner with a picture of him and all the trophies won during his tenure.Berlusconi owns 99.93 percent of the club, which he purchased 30 years ago. The three-time former premier and billionaire businessman has been negotiating for more than a year to sell the seven-time European champions.Fininvest, Berlusconis holding company, is still waiting for the Chinese group to pay the final chunk of 440 million euros ($465 million). The Chinese group -- of which all the members have not been named yet -- has already provided a 100 million euro ($105 million) deposit.We have very precise assurances from the banks that the deal will be closed the 13th, Berlusconi said. So well wait until the 13th and see what happens. If its not concluded then well see what to do.The Milan sale comes after Suning, the Chinese retail giant, took control of 70 percent of Inter in June.Berlusconi also wants longtime club vice president Adriano Galliani to stay on at Milan, even though Galliani has indicated he would be interested in running for Serie A president.I really hope theres space for him, Berlusconi said. Im going to make that one of the conditions for me accepting the honorary presidency. Roma Rick Karsdorp Jersey . LOUIS -- St. Roma Alessandro Florenzi Jersey . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. http://www.cheapasromajersey.com/ .In my heart and mind Im competing for India, luge competitor Shiva Keshavan told The Associated Press in an email interview. Every day Im flooded with messages from Indians all over the world telling me they are supporting me. TORONTO -- Mike Babcock scoffs at the notion that he simply shows up to coach the Canadians and they keep winning best-on-best games, a streak that has run to 14.I think thats what you guys think, he bristled at reporters.Whatever anyone things, Babcock has helped Canada win gold at the last two Olympics and he has the team rolling into the best-of-three World Cup of Hockey finals against Team Europe, with Game 1 on Tuesday night.His counterpart, meanwhile, is simply happy to have a shot to coach hockey again. Ralph Krueger wasnt sure if he would have another chance to be behind a bench after being fired a few years ago by the Edmonton Oilers via Skype while sitting on his daughters bed. He was let go after the Oilers went 19-22-7 during the lockout-shortened season.While still reeling from the blow, he got an opportunity to bounce back -- from Babcock. He asked Krueger to help the team as a consultant at the Sochi Games and they became friends, attending non-hockey events at the 2014 Olympics and swapping water skiing stories in recent years.Mike called me 12 hours later to ask me to come to the Olympic Games with Canada, so thats Mike Babcock, said Krueger, a Canadian who has known Babcock since 2004.Now, theyre matching wits as competitors in a tournament in which Canada seems to have everything to lose as a heavy favorite and Team Europe has everything to gain. Europes surprising performance has some wondering if the next time an NHL team has an opening, Kruger might get another call.You should never say never about anything in life, Krueger said. Circumstances change, but I definitely did not take this job hunting for a job.Krueger is chairman of Southampton , a Premier League soccer club. He ended up there by following an unusual path.When he became a coach in the Austrian Hockey League in 1994, Kruger was looking for another line of work.I was so frightened about the future and being unstable in coaching so I started doing motivational speaking and that took me into the corporate world, he recalled. I was then invited by the founder of the World Economic Forum to be one of thhe members of the leadership council. Roma Javier Pastore Jersey. . I was the only non-academic. There were 50 academics and me.That role led to his job with Southampton. When Team Europe was looking for a coach, its search started and ended with Krueger because of the relative success he has had in best-on-best tournaments.Kruger coached the Swiss at three Olympics, including in 2006 when he helped them to a sixth-place finish -- one spot ahead of Canada, a team they beat 2-0 -- and a fourth-place showing at the 1998 World Championships.Team Europe forward Frans Nielsen said he wouldnt be surprised if NHL teams start showing interest in Krueger.I think he has shown in this tournament how smart of a hockey brain he is, Nielsen said.He will be trying to figure out Canada this time, a team that hasnt lost a best-on-best game that counted under Babcock since the U.S. stunned the Canadians in the preliminary round of the Vancouver Games six years ago.I get up every morning, and I do the best I can, and work as hard as I can to prepare my team the best I can, Babcock said. Try to love the guys the best I can, try to make them feel good and make them better players. And I go home and love my family and I come here and do it the next day and over time things have worked out good.Babcock is the only coach to win gold at the Olympics and World Championships along with a Stanley Cup, which he helped the Detroit Red Wings hoist in 2008. He also led Anaheim to the Stanley Cup finals in 2003. His current team, the Maple Leafs, are in a rebuilding phase.Even though Babcock oozes with confidence these days, he acknowledged accomplishing the things he has were beyond his wildest dreams while he was growing up and climbing the coaching ladder.You grow up in Saskatoon or youre a coach at Red Deer College, you probably dont think youre going to coach Canadas Olympic team, he said.---Follow Larry Lage at www.twitter.com/larrylage and follow his work at www.bigstory.ap.org/content/larry-lage Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
