Mario Balotelli says he is ‘trying with all his strength’ to return for Milan in time for their weekend trip to Udinese.
The Rossoneri have been without their forward since he sustained a shoulder injury during the first leg of their Champions League Last 16 tie with Atletico Madrid.
Reports are that Clarence Seedorf is hoping to put the 23-year-old through a targeted training regime in the coming days, with a view to handing him a few minutes against Udinese on Saturday evening and to then have him fully fit in time for next midweek’s return match against Atleti.
On from this, the striker has revealed that he is targeting a weekend return, through his official Twitter account, where he posted an image of his shoulder during ultrasound therapy.
“The impossible! I’m trying with all my strength to recover for Saturday!” wrote Balotelli this morning.
“I cannot stand any more to not play.”
Yesterday evening Balotelli challenged his followers to a game of ping-pong: “And if someone think to beat me just let me know! I own you all i bet! I Never lost!”
