Mario Balotelli’s agent said “only he could put up with” the constant media pressure, but Milan and Serie A won’t be his final destination.
Mino Raiola was at San Siro for tonight’s Champions League game with Barcelona and spoke to Sky Sport Italia.
“Only he could put up with this constant bombardment from the media and I don’t know if I could’ve done the same in his position.
“Unfortunately, we have to accept it. We’ve gone back to the bad old days when people only talked about Balotelli. I guess it means there isn’t anything else to talk about in the news...
“Could he leave Italy because of this? Italy certainly will not be the end-point of his career, but we have another four years on the contract with Milan and are not thinking about going elsewhere because of that.”
Balotelli had said one of his reasons for leaving Manchester City was the string of media stories about him, many of them false.
