The agent of Mario Balotelli has blasted the British press for their treatment of the former Manchester City striker.

Balotelli scored twice on his AC Milan debut on the weekend after joining on transfer deadline day.

Mino Raiola declared: "Mario is capable of doing great things, but only has to find his continuity. British newspapers have reported just silly things, the British tabloids are only used for cleaning car windows.

"Mario has been calm for four months, he was unlucky in the last period at City, but his behavior has been exemplary."
