Mario Balotelli is celebrating a dream debut for AC Milan after stroking home a last-minute injury-time penalty to complete a 2-1 win against Udinese.
The striker benefited from his side earning a decidedly dubious spot-kick award to score his second goal of the game at the San Siro.
Mario Balotelli has celebrated his return to Italian football with a goal on his debut for AC Milan at the San Siro.
The former Manchester City striker, who began his often-controversial career at city rivals Inter, netted in the 25th minute against Udinese in the Serie A match.
Mario Balotelli aimed a parting shot at life in England during preparations for his first game as an AC Milan player.
Asked at a press conference what he had not liked about England, he replied: "The press first. The weather. The food. The way that you drive."
He said he had few happy memories of his experience in England, including: "My team mates, my manager. That's the good things."
And the player did not rule out a return to England at some point in the future:
"To be honest, the Premier League is an amazing league and I think it's the best, and the crowd and the pitches. .. so I don't know for the future if I could go back or not."
AC Milan has started selling Mario Balotelli shirts ahead of his proposed move from Manchester City.
AC Milan director Umberto Gandini says the Italian club have reached a deal to sign Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.
"Transfer agreement for Balotelli signed with Manchester City. Medicals tomorrow in Milan, then personal terms until 2017 signing."
