Chief Executive officer of AC Milan, Adriano Galliani has disclosed that Mario Balotelli has changed radically since he joined the club. While with Liverpool last season and previously with Manchester City, the eccentric striker has been renowned as much for his off-the-pitch antics than his play on it, but Galliani insists Balotelli has turned over a new leaf since he last played from Milan in 2014.

“He has an extraordinary attitude, he’s changed radically,” Galliani said. “He’s the first to arrive at [the training centre] and the last to leave. “Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic often wants the players to have breakfast at 8:30 a.m., and he’s always there before 8.

“He’s probably realised that this is his last chance and I’m sure he won’t waste it. His technical ability has never been in question. “If he continues with the approach he’s had in this first week then he’ll be fine.”
