Lustig warns of Balotelli threat

Celtic defender Mikael Lustig has ear-marked Mario Balotelli as Milan’s main danger when the two teams face each other.

The Rossoneri host the Scottish champions on Wednesday in their first Champions League game of the season.

And the Hoops centre-back has warned that the former Manchester City man is the biggest threat.

“Balotelli, especially this year, seems more mature, more of a team man,” he told reporters. “Balotelli can do it all.

“I played against him once, and he scored in that game. He is a top player, but we managed to stop some excellent players last year.

“Balotelli is a strong player, but we have to focus on our own game.

“Last season was amazing for us. We did very well in the group stages and we hope to repeat that.

“We know that, especially at Celtic Park, we can beat anyone.”
