Does the Mario Balotelli’s ice-cold 25 meter stunner against Udinese signal the return to form of one of the sport’s most talented and aggravating personalities?
Probably not, but it’s an absolutely beauty to watch.
Balotelli delivered that beauty only five-minutes into Milan’s match with Udinese. The Italian national is clearly shooting for more goals with Milan than he tallied while on loan for Liverpool.
Speculation is just beginning to bubble about what the striker will do this season for Milan, but big things are expected despite the fact that the club had to lay-out a list of “behavior clauses” for the 25 year old before bringing him back.
Perhaps the shorter leash is working. Coaches and teammates alike have to be happy with starting a match off with a boost like that. Balotelli gave a single arm raise to celebrate and walked toward center-field all business after being swarmed by his fellow teammates.
