Balotelli given green light

Milan have breathed a huge sigh of relief after tests revealed no injury to the calf muscle of Mario Balotelli.

The Rossoneri returned to Italy from their US tour this morning and the striker was immediately taken away for medical checks.

The January signing from Manchester City picked up a problem in the 2-0 win over LA Galaxy which was worrying club doctors.

Milan, though, have confirmed that all is well for the forward who should thus be available for international and Champions League duty.

Italy face Argentina on Wednesday, while the Diavolo will play PSV Eindhoven in the preliminary round of the Champions League later this month.

However, there are whispers that Azzurri boss Cesare Prandelli may leave out the forward as a precautionary measure.
