AC Milan signing Mario Balotelli admits in leaving Manchester City, he's also leaving the best League in the world.

Balotelli admitted the Premier League is superior to Serie A and even admitted that he had to look for another club after he was frozen out of first-team football by fed-up Roberto Mancini.

He said: "I have to be honest, English football is beautiful.

"And, if I can say, it is ahead of the Italian League.

"But in England I wasn't playing so I had this dream to play for Milan and to be close to my family and to my friends.

"To be honest the Premier League is an amazing League. I think it's the best.

"The crowd, the pitches are really amazing. I don't know for the future if I could go back or not. For the moment I want to be here."
