AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri was delighted with two-goal Mario Balotelli after their 2-0 win over Palermo.

Allegri feels the former Manchester City striker has found his home at Milan.

"I think this is an important opportunity for Balotelli, as for the first time he is playing as a protagonist in a team full of youngsters," said Coach Allegri.

"He is relaxed and an excellent professional. He has been on the European stage for seven or eight years, but this is his best chance so far to really show his qualities."
