Kaka tells Balotelli: It’s time to use your talents to help Milan

Mario Balotelli has been warned by former AC Milan star Kaka to finally make use of his skills and be decisive for the club.

The 25-year-old returned to the Rossoneri after a failed stint at Liverpool, in which he scored just one Premier League goal following a €20 million move last summer.

The move is said to be Balotelli’s final chance to show that he can be a top striker and Kaka, who won the Champions League and the Ballon d’Or during his time at San Siro, feels the striker must start to fulfil his promise at last.

“Mario is a very talented player, there is no doubt about it,” he told Goal.

“But he must understand that this isn’t an easy time for him and he really needs to find some motivation in order to use his talent to help the team.

“He’s the type of player who can easily change a match at any time – and I hope he can lend a hand to Milan’s season.”

Milan finished 10th in Serie A last term but have invested heavily in their squad over the summer as they look to return to European football next term.
