Report: Balotelli was in Milan nightclub hours after West Brom win

Mario Balotelli Italy

Italian newspaper Leggo claims Mario Balotelli jumped on a plane for Milan almost as soon as Liverpool's win over West Brom ended.

If reports in Italy are to be believed then Mario Balotelli left Anfield in a hurry after last Saturday's win over West Brom and jetted off to Milan for a night out.

The Italian international is struggling to settle back in the Premier League and was only used as a substitute last weekend.

Balotelli's lack of goals and perceived attitude problems have caused Italy boss Antonio Conte to leave him out of his latest national squad.

According to free newspaper Leggo, Balotelli was seen in a Milan night spot called Byblos late on Saturday night where he ran into Rossoneri director Barbara Berlusconi, who was celebrating Milan's win over Chievo.

The two reportedly exchanged pleasantries and then went their separate ways.

It is also stated that Balotelli's former teammates Adil Rami and M’Baye Niang were there.

Balotelli wouldn't have been breaking any club rules by heading back to Italy but it possibly suggests that he isn't settled in Liverpool.

Over the last few days it has been suggested that Balotelli has a minder at Liverpool and maybe part of his role is to prevent Super Mario frequenting Milanese bars after games.
