Mario Balotelli completes AC Milan return on season-long loan deal

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has completed a season-long loan move back to AC Milan.

The Italy international has moved back to the club he left last summer in a £16million deal after manager Brendan Rodgers made it clear he had no future at the club, leaving him out of their pre-season tour and making him train away from the main group.

In his first spell with Milan Balotelli scored 30 times in 54 appearances but he netted just four times in 28 appearances with the Reds.

That included just a solitary Premier League goal to his name - a late winner against Tottenham Hotspur in February - in a season that also saw Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League. 

Milan have also reportedly taken measures to ensure the former Manchester City talisman behaves himself back in his homeland.
