Balotelli trains with AC Milan ahead of loan move from Liverpool

Although there has not been any confirmation of his move from Liverpool, controversial striker Mario Balotelli has begun training with the first team squad of AC Milan.

Balotelli passed his medical earlier yesterday ahead of the loan switch from Merseyside, and Milan’s official Twitter account had already tweeted pictures of the Italian training with his team-mates.

“I’m happy to be back,” said the forward who spent 18 months at Milan previously.

“Physically, I’m in a pretty good shape, with so much motivation. I realize ‘action speaks louder than words’, so I don’t have much to say.”

“Milan has always had a special place in my heart and I have always hoped to return,” he added, as quoted by Eurosport.

The 25 year-old endured an unfortunate season with The Reds, scoring just four goals, and was left out of the pre-season tour by manager Brendan Rodgers.

The arrival of new signings Christian Benteke, Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino further pushed Balotelli down the pecking orders, at a point where he trained separately from the team.
