Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli scored on his return to AC Milan, but coach Sinisa Mihajlovic still isn’t impressed with him.
The Italian international scored a sensational long-range strike against Mantova as Milan won 3-2 on Thursday, but his coach wants him to improve his condition.
“We played a team from Serie C,” he told Premium Sport. “We can see that Balotelli is not in good condition and must improve.
“If we think we win because we’re called Milan, we’re not going anywhere.”
Balotelli took to Instagram later in the evening to insist that he believes he has made a good start to life back with the Rossoneri, but he is not satisfied yet.
Given that this could be his last opportunity to produce at the top level, the 25-year-old appears to be much more focused and has received praise from Milan chiefs and teammates alike.
However, there is a long way to go for Balotelli and having been left on the bench last weekend against Empoli, he will hope to be back in action in Serie A after the international break when Milan face city rivals Inter.
