Mario Balotelli has 'changed radically' at AC Milan, according to club chief Adriano Galliani

The Liverpool flop has turned over a new leaf with the Rossoneri, according to Adriano Galliani.

Mario Balotelli may have been difficult to work with at Liverpool, but he’s already proving to be the model professional with AC Milan.

That is according to club CEO Adriano Galliani, who has been singing the Italian’s praises following his loan switch to the San Siro.

Balotelli scored just one Premier League goal during a single sorry season with Liverpool where he drew criticism for his poor attitude and lack of work ethic.

However, in quotes published by the Liverpool Echo, Galliani has gone on the record to speak in gushing terms about the Italian’s approach since arriving.

"He has an extraordinary attitude, he's changed radically," he said. "He's the first to arrive at [the training centre] and the last to leave.

"He's probably realised that this is his last chance and I'm sure he won't waste it. His technical ability has never been in question.”

Galliani also claims that Balotelli has often been found arriving 30 minutes early for Milan manager Sinisa Mihaljovic’s breakfast meetings.

The change of heart comes as the Italian looks to force his away back into the picture for the national side.

Current Azzurri boss Antonio Conte has so far opted against including the troubled forward in his squads for the on-going Euro 2016 qualifiers.

But if his fine form off the pitch translates into goals and assists on it, then the ex-Juventus coach could have little choice but to recall Balotelli.

It could also result in the current loan agreement becoming something a little more permanent.
