The Milan president Silvio Berlusconi claims the Club World Cup champions can improve their poor form in Serie A once their Brazilian teenager Pato is eligible to play from January.

"I have spoken to [coach] Carlo Ancelotti about what Pato could bring to Milan and he told me that if he continues to play the way we've seen him in training he will score 30 goals between January and June," Berlusconi said, before discussing the club's injury-prone Brazilian, Ronaldo.

"There is something psychological, and now we will subject him to an intense psychological cure," Berlusconi said. "Otherwise we will take him to Lourdes!"

Milan, who beat Boca Juniors to win the Club World Cup, are 11th in Serie A.
