Balotelli training with teammates

Mario Balotelli has returned to training with his Milan teammates, as he continues his recovery from a hernia.

The striker hasn’t played since the defeat to Genoa on September 27, and went under the knife last month to correct the problem.

‘Super Mario’ returned to training last week, but continued to follow a personalised recovery program, rather than working with the team.

However, at Milanello today both Balotelli and Andrea Bertolacci trained with the rest of the team, ahead of the visit of Verona at the weekend. 

It’s unlikely Balotelli would be fit to face the Butei after such an extended period on the sidelines, but the on-loan Liverpool man is on track to meet his aim of returning before Christmas.
