AC Milan chief Galliani admits Balotelli will be missed against Barcelona

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits they'll miss Mario Balotelli against Champions League opponents Barcelona.

Balotelli cannot play against Barcelona, as he has already featured in the Champions League for Manchester City this season.

"Balotelli inspires the other players, sort of like the 'Zlatan Ibrahimovic effect.' He gives strength and his performances have a collateral effect on the others. His goals are proof we didn't just buy him for his media impact."
