Italy’s former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has revealed he’s been inundated with calls over whether he will fulfil his promise of offering his Monza players prostitutes after they beat Juventus on Sunday.
The controversial 86-year-old, who now owns Serie A side Monza, shockingly promised the players at their Christmas party last month a ‘bus full of wh**es’ if they beat AC Milan or Juventus this season.
And the newly-promoted side just did that, causing one of the biggest upsets of the Italian top-flight campaign so far by beating Max Allegri’s side 2-0 on their own patch.

Monza did just that after beating Juve 2-0 on Sunday in one of the biggest shocks this season
Patrick Ciurria and Dany Mota Carvalho scored both goals in the win to leave Juventus languishing in 13th – two places below Monza, following the club’s 15-point deduction following an investigation into the club’s transfer dealings.
Following the result, Berlusconi admitted the topic of providing sex workers for his players as a reward has already been brought up.
Speaking to La Repubblica, the former AC Milan owner said: ‘Over 100 people have already called me, and they ask me to fulfil my commitment.’

Monza’s social media team tried to make light of the situation by posting an image of a coach after their famous win over Juventus on Sunday
The Serie A club’s social media team posted a picture of a Monza bus following the result, poking fun at the situation.
The vulgar promise was made during his speech at the club’s official Christmas party, after he took the microphone, praised the work of head coach Raffaele Palladino before make the bawdy vow, to widespread laughter among the listening audience.
Berlusconi said: ‘We found a new coach, who was at our youth team, he is good, smart, kind, and able to stimulate (motivate) our lads.
‘I decided to add an extra stimulation, so I told the lads you will play Milan, Juventus, etc, so if you beat one of these big teams, I will have you greeted in the locker room by a bus full of wh**es.’
The media tycoon’s speech was widely shared on social media and was met with widespread critcism.
Fellow Italian politician Daniela Sbrollini hit out at the remarks, claiming they were the ‘usual misogynist language from Berlusconi: a joke in bad taste that leaves you speechless.’

Berlusconi defended his remarks as ‘a simple dressing room joke’ and bashed his critics for their ‘total lack of humour’ for attacking him ‘so gratuitously’.
Berlusconi is best known for his three reigns as Italy’s prime minister between 1994 and 1995, 2001 and 2006, and 2008 and 2011 as leader of the Forza Italia party. He has also owned Italian giants AC Milan from 1986 to 2017 before taking over at Monza in 2018.
