Milan want no Balotelli abuse

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani hopes that Mario Balotelli will not get a hostile reception from Inter fans at this Sunday's Milan derby.

Mario Balotelli: Facing old club for first time since his return to Italy

The enigmatic Italian striker returned to the city in January, having left Manchester City for following a two-and-a-half-year spell at the Premier League champions.

Balotelli began his career at Inter before his £20million move to City, having courted controversy at times during his first stint at the San Siro.

The Italian international threw his Inter shirt to the ground after being booed by his own fans in a UEFA Champions League match, and was seen wearing an AC Milan shirt around the city.

"I hope fans will give him a normal welcome," said Galliani.

"We didn't tear him away from Inter, but from Manchester City, so I hope he won't suffer any kind of abuse."

AC Milan are one point and two places ahead of Inter in the Serie A table, and Galliani is wary of their rivals.

"It's a big game, but not decisive," he added Galliani. "Inter are a very good side and are only one point behind us."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
