Mario Balotelli: Had wanted to play alongside Carlos Tevez once again

Mario Balotelli: Had wanted to play alongside Carlos Tevez once again

Balotelli left Manchester City to return to Italy in January, and Tevez recently followed him out of the Etihad Stadium exit door.

He has linked up with Juve on a three-year deal after rejecting interest from Milan and other clubs, but Balotelli is still confident of claiming Serie A glory.

"I don't fear Juve, I fear nobody," he said. "Tevez? He's a friend and I told him to come to Milan, but he didn't listen me and he went to Juve.

"If it happens, when we meet on the pitch, I'll make fun of him."

Balotelli's own future had been the subject of speculation earlier in the summer despite the fact that he only moved in January, but Milan recently made it clear that he would not be sold.

"It has been good to hear this," said the striker. "In football you never know, but Milan is the club I have in my heart, they are a good club with really good supporters.

"Now I feel good here and I'll stay here, then, one day, we will see."

Balotelli believes Milan need to bolster their squad to kick on from last season and has suggested that the club make a move for Paris St Germain's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"I'd like to play with him," said Balotelli. "Maybe if I say it, they will buy him.

"I hope Milan can strengthen because we are strong, but to be able to compete with the other clubs on a European level we need to strengthen."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
