AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has admitted goalkeeper Dida´s over-reaction to being struck by a Celtic fan towards the end of the recent Champions League game at Parkhead was a "mistake".

UEFA have since banned the Brazilian for two matches for breaching their "principles of loyalty, integrity and sportsmanship", meaning he will miss back-to-back games against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Berlusconi told www.acmilan.com: "It´s hard to understand what goes through the mind of a player when those things happen. It can also happen to a great champion, to make a mistake."
