Ibra-Balotelli at Milan 'a dream'

Agent Mino Raiola admits it is “a dream” to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Mario Balotelli at Milan and reveals who SuperMario was shouting at.

It has long been said that Manchester City star Balotelli has a future with the Rossoneri, especially as he supports the club and has always praised Ibra.

“Zlatan is very relaxed and will stay at Milan. He made an agreement and it will be respected,” Raiola told Sky Sport Italia.

“Seeing him and Balotelli together is a dream and often the dreams are better than reality,” added the agent who represents both players.

Balotelli is in the headlines after his sensational goal against the Republic of Ireland and unusual celebration.

The Italian international began shouting until teammate Leonardo Bonucci clamped a hand over his mouth.

Some said he was angry at Coach Cesare Prandelli for starting him from the bench, others that he was reacting to jeers from the Irish fans.

“Mario doesn’t like coming off the bench, but his words were certainly not aimed at Prandelli,” assured Raiola.

“He merely reacted to criticism and was very disappointed at the media putting him on trial.”
