Few hours after he sealed up his £16million move to Liverpool, Mario Balotelli has penned a heartfelt farewell message to the fans as well as staff he left at AC Milan. The message was posted on his instagram account.
As I am about to enter a new chapter, I would like to thank the AC Milan fans who have shown incredible loyalty and faith in me. I also want to thank the great staff who have shown exceptional patience and guidence [sic] over the years.

“Most importantly, I want to express endless gratitude to my teammates who supported me on and off the pitch, just like my family does. Your camaraderie will be forever appreciated, as I’ve learned so much from you all.

“I leave Milan with sadness, but know that I will still make you all proud going forward.
