AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is enjoying working with Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli started last week after Giampaolo Pazzini pulled out in the warm-up and ended up scoring both goals in the 2-1 win over Udinese.

"Mario is destined to be on the front pages, as he suffers from an over-the-top media pressure and everything he does is blown up out of proportion. He has the qualities to act as an assist-man and it's only natural he has to improve his fitness levels, as he has barely played for three months."
