AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli was pleased with his performance in their 2-2 draw at Livorno. Balotelli bagged a brace and hit the crossbar late on with a stunning strike from 30 metres.

"That's football. Next time it will go in," he shrugged on Sky Sport Italia.

"I have always been in good shape and never had any of the problems that were written about. I just wasn't scoring, that's all.

"We need to be more careful when our opponents go on the counter-attack, because every time they do we tend to concede.

"We are playing fairly well and are scoring again at last, which was a problem before, so now we just need a little more luck."
