Mario Balotelli: Looking forward to starting a new chapter in his career at AC M

The 22-year-old ended an eventful two-and-a-half seasons in England this week when he returned to Serie A.

Balotelli never really settled in Manchester, and was in the headlines for his off-the-pitch antics as much as he was for his achievements on the field.

"It is an honour to play for Milan. I hope I'll stay here as long as possible. I'm here to win as a main player," Balotelli said.

"Now is the best moment to be at AC Milan. My physical conditions are perfectly fine.

"To be back in Milan is important since I'm close to my family and friends and playing for Milan is a dream. I'd rather play than talk."

And the Italy international insists he will have no problem celebrating if he scores in the derby match against his old club Inter Milan.

He added: "I wasn't expecting such a welcoming from fans, it was very emotional. I'd celebrate during the derby if I score."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
