Mario’s missing the San Siro
Mario Balotelli has hardly had the best of starts to life in England since his £24 million move from Inter Milan. Despite scoring on his debut, the Italian youngster has also written off his Audi R8 and picked up an injury that requires surgery and is likely to keep him out for six weeks.
Perhaps that explains why he has responded so positively to praise from AC Milan, the traditional mating call of the Serie A giants.
The 20-year-old said: “I’m pleased for the words of Galliani. I like AC Milan, they are a strong team.”
Yesterday, AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani had said: “Anything is possible now that he doesn’t play for Inter. We have a good relationship with Mino Raiola (Balotelli’s agent).
“We have never spoken about Balotelli, but I won’t deny that one day I would like to see him in a Milan jersey.”
