  • New, improved Mario Balotelli ready to fulfil dying father's wish

    Balotelli's return to the Rossoneri on a one-season loan deal has been met with derision in Italy, with pundits and most fans opposed to the striker's return to the club he left only a year ago. Balotelli spectacularly underperformed at Anfield, instead embellishing his reputation as a "liability" -- the view of former Reds legend Graeme Souness, among others. Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and Milan have instigated a special code of conduct for Balotelli, a player who in the past has riled fans and clubs with his off-field antics, outrageous hairstyles and outings to nightclubs where he has enjoyed the odd cigarette. Balotelli has pledged to comply -- and with good reason.
