Albertini urges AC Milan not to sell Balotelli

AC Milan hero Demetrio Albertini says they must not sell Mario Balotelli. The striker is being linked with Chelsea this week.

"If I was a Milan director who signed him then I would keep a tight grip on him," the Italian Football Federation Vice-President told Uno Mattina. "I would not sell him.

"He's a great talent, but he makes the front pages for negative things.

"Balotelli just needs to be left alone and he needs to learn to trust only those people who love him.

"We need to get to the stage where we are only talking about him for what he does on the field of play."
