‘Balo not a star or a leader’

Former Milan great Alessandro Costacurta warns: ‘Mario Balotelli isn’t a star player or a leader.’

The ex-Rossoneri centre-back underlined his belief that the striker can help Milan, but shouldn’t be put centre stage again.

“Mario is a player who can help Milan, but not someone who can win games by himself,” Costacurta ssaid to Tuttosport.

“It’s important that Balotelli is considered as a help and not as the star of the team.

“The mistake made before was to consider the guy as a champion – he isn’t.

“He’s a good player, potentially great, but he isn’t world class and he isn’t a leader.”
