Mario Balotelli caught training with AC Milan?

Published Add your comment

Although Mario Balotelli has been granted time off to take a trip to Italy, he wasn't supposed to be training with his former club. 

Balotelli visited AC Milan's training ground on Tuesday afternoon to visit his ex-teammates. Milan's social media team then uploaded photo of Balotelli in the club's training gear, which caused quite a stir.

This post was swiftly deleted and, for once, it would seem that a mini-storm involving Balotelli was not created by the controversial Liverpool striker himself.

It is reported that the photo was actually one of Balotelli training with Milan during his two-and-a-half years at the San Siro with the Rossoneri.

Milan, who currently lie 10th in Serie A in what has been a difficult season for Fillipo Inzaghi's side, confirmed Balotelli's presence at their training ground with a story on the official club website.

Balotelli also took to Instagram to highlight his visit, posing for a photo with striker Stephan El Shaarawy.

The Italy international has struggled in the Premier League since joining Liverpool last summer for £16million. He has only netted once in the league - the winner in a 3-2 victory over Tottenham at Anfield in February.

Liverpool have granted their players Tuesday off as they prepare to face Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium next Monday.

Should Mario Balotelli have been allowed to go back to the Milan training ground?
