Turns out AC Milan will be doing without Super Mario this weekend. During a press conference Milan’s boss, Sinisa Mihajlovic revealed that Balotelli would be out with a groin injury.
Balotelli was absent from Milan’s 4-0 duff against Napoli on October 4th with groin injury issues as well. He was projected to start this weekend, but now is not going to be playing against Turin.
Mihajlovic laments that it’s all part of professional football.
“I hope he can resume full training again on Monday.”
Balotelli who initially came back to AC Milan under “Behavioral Guidelines” has had a strong showing for the club so far into his one-year loan. Mangers and staff weren’t sure what to expect with rumors of the relationship between Balotelli and Liverpool souring quickly. He executed a beautiful free kick early in the season for AC Milan, and also scored in a 3-2 victory over Udinese.
Milan will definitely feel his absence on set pieces.
