Mario Balotelli’s run in England has recently come to an end. The Italian striker moved a bit closer to home, when he was transferred to AC Milan right before the transfer window closed this past January. The Italian encountered various problems with his previous club, but he hopes that they are behind him with a fresh start with Milan.
Mario Balotelli declared his lifelong love for AC Milan during a packed presentation with his new club Friday. There wasn’t much love for England, though, as the Italy striker listed all the “bad things” he won’t miss after leaving Manchester City: “the press, the weather, the food, the way I like to drive.”
Balotelli grew up as a fan of the Rossoneri, and he appeared delighted for most of the news conference at the San Siro, sitting alongside Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani.
“It’s an honour for me to play for Milan. I’ve wanted to play for Milan for a long time,” Balotelli said.
