Milan deny Balo-police reports

Milan have denied reports that Mario Balotelli was involved in an incident with local police in the city today.

Stories earlier on Thursday in the Italian Press had suggested that the 22-year-old was pulled over by the authorities, before arguing with police.

But the Rossoneri have quashed those claims, denying that the recently-arrived striker was involved in any incidents.

“Today at Linate airport, local police conducted a routine search on the Audi used by Mario Ballotelli,” a statement on their official website read.

“Contrary to what has been reported by some sources, there was no argument.

“Mario travelled at Milanello as usual to participate in this afternoon's training session.”
