AC Milan’s head coach, Sinisa Mihajlovic has come out in defense of mario Balotelli’s behaviour. He said Balotelli’s has a character rating of 10 out of 10. The 25-year-old’s career has been much talked about due to distractions off the pitch and his history of bad disposition. Since returning to San Siro on loan from Liverpool, he has stayed out of trouble and it’s incredible.
The talented forward has been on the sidelines a lot due to injury concerns. He has played 16 games scoring 3 goals for the team. After meeting him recently, Milan coach says he still has confidence in him.
Sinisa Mihajlovic told Sky Sport Italia: “I was blunt with him. I wanted to talk to him and look at him, because I’ve known Mario since Roberto Mancini gave him his Inter debut.”
Balotelli has a history of bad behavior and Inter Milan former coach, Jose mourinho tagged him “unmanageable.”
“He was a kid then. Many years have passed and he’s changed, too. I found a mature person, a man, not a boy. I wanted to look him in the eyes, and he gave me the right impression. The key thing is that he’s a good lad, and I really like him,” he continued.
Sinisa said: “He knows he’s made a lot of mistakes. He’s the first to admit that. It’s true that everything is amplified when it comes to him, but it’s also true that he brings a lot of that onto himself. His behaviour has been 10 out of 10 this year. He has to do more on the pitch, but he knows that as well and we’ve often talked about it. I’m certain we’ll succeed.”
However, Eusebio Di Francesco is widely rumoured to take over at AC Milan should Sinisa Mihajlovic fail to lead the team into Europe.
