AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli is sorry seeing Carlos Tevez move to Juventus.

Balotelli wanted his former Manchester City teammate to join him at Milan.

"Carlitos is a great player," Balotelli told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I got on well with him at Manchester City. I phoned him on a number of occasions in an effort to convince him to join us, but he then chose Juventus instead. That's a shame."
