The Prodigal son returns to AC Milan.
Super Mario is back!
The Italian International has found his way back home to AC Milan. In what appeared to be a lateral move, the striker returned to the club under more suspicion than fanfare and a set of strict rules governing both his personal and professional lives. The Metro UK reports that Balo even took a sizeable wage reduction to the make the transfer possible. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” has never rung so true for the likes of Milan boss Siniša Mihajlović, who suddenly finds himself in possession of a world-class striker returning to form and possibly reaching his full potential. Last Tuesday, from at least 25 yards out, Balo scored an amazing free-kick for Milan v Udinese, laser targeted to the far post upper 90 giving keeper Karnesiz absolutely no chance to defend against it.
What was even more surprising was the uncharacteristic jubilant celebration Mario had with his team mates after scoring the goal. Perhaps he’s learned a lesson from his brief spell with Liverpool. The British press and punditry hated Mario’s attitude after scoring, and rightly or wrongly, made it a subject of discussion that overshadowed his modest accomplishments on the island. They wanted to see him smile, and now they will, from many miles away.
