Mario Balotelli's exit from Liverpool during the transfer window was a case of when, rather than if, following his fall down the pecking order at Anfield.
Having signed for £16 million a year before, the Italian forward failed to live up to expectations on Merseyside, and his performances on the field, coupled with his antics off the pitch convinced Liverpool to cut their losses.
However AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani believes the striker has changed radically since he joined the San Siro side on loan last week.

As per the Mail, Galliani said: "He has an extraordinary attitude, he's changed radically. He's the first to arrive at [the training centre] and the last to leave.
"Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic often wants the players to have breakfast at 8:30am, and he's always there before 8. He's probably realised that this is his last chance and I'm sure he won't waste it.
"His technical ability has never been in question. If he continues with the approach he's had in this first week then he'll be fine."
Liverpool cut their losses with the forward after a failed 12 months, that saw him score a miserly four goals in 28 appearances, in all competitions.
Since leaving Merseyside, Balotelli has claimed Brendan Rodgers' tactics were to blame for his failure at the club, but in all honesty, his attitude was all wrong for giving his best to Liverpool.
There is no doubting the former Manchester City player is a talented forward and hopefully he has changed, and we can begin to see the striker that showed so much promise in his earlier days.
But since he has only been in Milan for six days, it is too early to make a decision on whether he is actually a changed man, or if it is just a flash in the pan.
Liverpool fans, is Mario Balotelli a changed man or do you think his antics will begin to creep out again soon? Should he have been given more of a chance on Merseyside? Have your say below!
