AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has held one-on-one talks with several senior players over the weekend.
It's understood Berlusconi advised Balotelli to stop tracking back and to play "closer to the goal". He later lunched with GM Adriano Galliani and coach Max Allegri.
"I'm sorry for the exit of the Italian clubs from the Champions League. Milan will do everything to do perform well in the competition," Berlusconi said in the afternoon.
