AC Milan legend Jose Altafini has slammed the quality of striker Mario Balotelli. Altafini says fans are wrong to be critical of general manager Adriano Galliani.

"Galliani did what he could. If anything, the real failure is Balotelli," blasted Altafini, who is now a TV commentator.

"It's no longer even surprising, as he keeps doing the same things. In my view we shouldn't pay him any more attention, in the hope that eventually he'll figure it out.

"Great players are above all distinguished by their character. Balotelli lacks it. Just compare him with Kaka and you'll see."
