Silvio Berlusconi has revealed that AC Milan will undergo a "complete change" this summer.

The Italian club's president wrote a letter to Il Processo di Biscardi that was read out on live television in which he claimed that the entire coaching staff will be overhauled.

"There will be a complete change in the coaching staff," he wrote. "We will also, if necessary, re-organise the club structure.

"After the disastrous start to the season, I met with the coach (Massimiliano Allegri) and directors to tell everyone this situation had to be overturned. I also specified that the team had to step on to the field with a different tactical setup, as I have a lot of experience in this area.

"The results were seen straight away, modesty aside, starting from the comeback to draw 2-2 with Napoli. From the relegation zone we climbed to third place, earned yesterday by the skin of our teeth. I have already called for tomorrow a complete revamp of the coaching staff and, if it were needed, a more efficient and complete re-organisation of the club structure."

Milan finished third in the 2012-13 Serie A campaign.
