Mario Takes Parting Shot

Mario Balotelli has revealed that there is very little he will miss about life in England after switching to AC Milan from Manchester City.

The mercurial talent made a £19m move back to his homeland and when asked about England he did not shy away from full disclosure.

"Good things? Only when I get to Carrington to train, so my team-mates and manager," he said.

"Bad things? Everything else - press, weather, food, the way you drive."

Italy giants AC Milan have agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the 22-year-old Balotelli and hope to be able to get the best out of him.

The Italy international is known for producing moments of brilliance but his time in England was marred by controversy.

"I prefer playing - not talking,” said Balotelli. "To be a player for Milan has always been my dream so I'm very happy.

"Now I'm at Milan it's very important above all because I am close to my family and friends. Manchester is not so far, but it's not close like Milan."

Balotelli did leave the door open for a potential move back to England in the future as he remarked: "It is an amazing league and I think it's the best, together with the crowd and the pitches.

"I don't know for the future if I could go back or not."
