Liverpool player Mario Balotelli’s return to AC Milan on a season-long loan did not come at an easy cost in relation to the player’s conducts.
The former Manchester City player had to submit to some codes of conduct specially put in place for him by Chief Executive Officer Adriana Galliani.
The Liverpool striker who could only manage a single goal in 16 Premier League appearances passed a medical to join the Serie A club on Tuesday.
The code of conduct the new AC Milan signing needs to adhere to include:
Ensuring Balotelli will not damage the image of the club and his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram posts will be closely monitored.
Toning down his ‘extravagant hairstyles’
Wearing clothes ‘in keeping with the style of a club like Milan’
Cutting out his smoking habit
Always showing up on time and banned from visiting nightclubs
Mario Balotelli had this to say after his return to AC Milan:
“Did I think I would return to Milan? Yes, I always had Milan in my heart and I always had hope that I would return one day.
“I’m happy to have returned. I have little to say, just that I’m looking forward to train and prove my worth.
“I’m physically well – I just have to train with the squad. I have a lot of motivation but I just have to work and not speak.
“Will I end my career here? I just have to start to work and have a good year, just have to work and that’s that.”
