Mario Balotelli says he is happy to be back in Serie A after completing a medical ahead of a loan switch toAC Milan.
The Italy international arrived in the city early on Tuesday as he prepares to finalise a season-long loan move back to San Siro from Liverpool.
Speaking to reporters outside the La Madonnina clinic, he said: “I’m happy to be back.
“I’m fit, I just need to train with my team-mates. I don’t want want to talk too much, I’m only focused on working hard because I want to have a good season.”
The 25-year-old, who grew up in Brescia, dispelled suggestions that he felt like he was coming home, however.
“No, my home is in Brescia,” he said simply.
Balotelli, who scored just once in 16 Premier League appearances last season, has been frozen out of Brendan Rodgers’ plans at Liverpool.
The former Manchester City man scored 30 goals in 54 appearances during his first spell with Milan between 2012 and 2014.
