Galliani: 'Balotelli must earn Milan'

Adriano Galliani said Mario Balotelli “has to earn the right to play for Milan and convince us to buy him outright.”

SuperMario starts against Juventus this evening, follow the action as it happens on our LIVEBLOG.

“Balotelli has to earn the right to play for Milan. He knows that, we had a very long talk about it. He must convince us to buy him outright, so it depends only on him.

“Mario has everything it takes to achieve that aim. We hope he will achieve it,” the CEO told Mediaset Premium.

The Rossoneri were thrown into a training retreat for the last six days after a 2-1 defeat to Atalanta.

“Yesterday I saw the team in good shape, they had two good training sessions and two that were less good. It’s a team that needs to find its consistency, as even in training there are different performances. The situation seems to change every day.”

Milan will face Juventus in the Coppa Italia Final on May 21.

 “I think we’ll be meeting Juventus for a third time in 2016, because if they win the Scudetto then we’ll face off again for the Italian Super Cup, regardless of how the Coppa Italia Final goes.”
