Mario Balotelli: Targeted by Inter fans

Mario Balotelli: Targeted by Inter fans

Former Inter striker Balotelli joined AC Milan from Manchester City during the January transfer window and has made an immediate impact on his return to Serie A, scoring three goals in two games for Massimiliano Allegri's side.

But he found himself the target of a section of Inter fans on Sunday night who directed racist abuse at him as their side beat the Flying Donkeys 3-1.

Moratti was made aware of the chanting and outlined his hope there would not be a repeat during the Milan derby on February 24.

"I was told about it because I couldn't make out clearly what they were saying. I'm very sorry about that," Moratti told Inter's official website.

"I'm very sorry and I really hope it doesn't happen during the derby."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
