Mario Balotelli has no doubts about AC Milan's ability to return to a major force next season.

Mario Balotelli: The striker won the Premier League with Manchester City last se

The Italian heavyweights were knocked out of the UEFA Champions in midweek after blowing a two-goal aggregate advantage to lose 4-2 over two legs to Barcelona.

Balotelli was cup-tied against Barca, having moved to Milan in January from Manchester City, and so could not help in what was a disappointing 4-0 second-leg loss at Camp Nou.

But despite Milan also sitting third and 11 points off defending champions Juventus in Serie A, the Italy striker is confident the 2012/13 campaign will be a story of success.

"Our growth was not expected in a single game against Barcelona," said Balotelli - who won the Premier League with City and three Serie A titles with another former club - Inter Milan, on his facebook account.

"But we are looking to (improve in) the future. I have been sure of that since I signed the contract.

"When I move, I do it just to win and it happened in every team I (in which I have) played. We are going to win from the next season."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
