Gamble backfires for Milan

Balotelli's Milan contract: No clubbing, no smoking, no crazy haircuts

No more haircuts like this for Mario Balotelli.

If the good folks at Gazzetta della Sport are to be believed, Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is going to have his work cut out trying to stick to the rules of his new loan contract at AC Milan.

Balotelli, who has a lengthy rap sheet of misdemeanors -- including smoking regularly, having fireworks in his bathroom, posting material found to be 'racist and anti-Semitic' on social media, partying before games, as well as multiple training ground issues -- will be forced to adhere to a...

Mario Balotelli's Milan return creates another problem for Mihajlovic to solve

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the news that Mario Balotelli has passed a medical for a loan move to AC Milan.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno shares his thoughts on the number of opportunities and playing time Mario Balotelli was afforded at Liverpool.

"I won't talk about players I don't coach," Sinisa Mihajlovic said, bristling. "It's useless you asking me these questions."

So it wasn't true, then, that a covert meeting had taken place with Mario Balotelli behind the tinted windows of a black van in a Florence, Italy, car park 20 minutes from Milan's hotel the night before Milan's Serie A curtain raiser against Fiorentina? "No," Mihajlovic replied. In today's game, a football manager must be both a diplomat and a spy.

Milan give Mario Balotelli a last chance at success

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the news that Mario Balotelli has passed a medical for a loan move to AC Milan.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes discuss whether Mario Balotelli can find his goal-scoring touch with AC Milan, as reports suggest he is set to return to the San Siro on a season-long loan.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno shares his thoughts on the number of opportunities and playing time Mario Balotelli was afforded at Liverpool.

Mario Balotelli's move to Liverpool was always going to end in disappointment. For all his quality, something just didn't feel right about the Italian ace's fit with the club and there was an air of inevitability that he would be criticised by supporters and the media alike.

While he would have certainly contributed to the problem, the £16m move to Merseyside can essentially be described as a failure. Fast forward 12 months and Balotelli's return to Milan is imminent; he's going back to a...

Mihajlovic's gamble backfires as Milan fall to defeat

ESPN FC's Craig Burley shares his thoughts on Mario Balotelli's reported one-year loan to former club AC Milan.

Sinisa Mihajlovic's tenure at Milan started with defeat in Florence on Sunday night, as the Rossoneri fell to a 2-0 loss to Fiorentina. While it is far too early to overreact, it wasn't the most reassuring of starts for the Serbian tactician.

Mihajlovic opted to keep faith in young defensive pair Alessio Romagnoli and Rodrigo Ely after they had impressed in the Coppa Italia on Monday night. However, the latter had a nightmare. After looking shaky in the opening stages, he was then sent off in...

Sinisa Mihajlovic expected to lead AC Milan back to Serie A contention

AC Milan's new manager Sinisa Mihajlovic, left, hopes to take advantage of the club's new recruits to turn the team around.

After some disappointing recent years, AC Milan enter a new season with a new manager Sinisa Mihajlovic hoping to put those poor seasons behind them. However, is the Serbian tactician the man to finally turn things around and guide the Rossoneri back into Serie A contention?

The biggest criticism of the club in recent years has been their lack of investment in the squad. CEO Adriano Galliani had brought in countless stop-gap solutions over the last three years, neglecting the long-term vision that...

AC Milan's new signing Alessio Romagnoli: What you need to know

Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic admits the Audi Cup defeats to Bayern Munich and Tottenham have confirmed his team's shortcomings, but insists he doesn't have a magic wand to guide AC Milan back to their former stature.
Alessio Romagnoli made 30 appearances under Sinisa Mihajlovic while on loan at Sampdoria last year.

Alessio Romagnoli became one of the most interesting signings in Italy on Tuesday as AC Milan sealed a €25 million deal to bring him in from Roma. Those who don't follow Serie A closely wouldn't have heard a lot about the 20-year-old centre back before the transfer saga started two months ago, so here are a few things you need to know about the man who has been tipped to lead the Milan and Italy defence gfor years to come.
