Borriello is convinced Balotelli would never have kicked off like he did if he was a Milan player.
He explained: "No, absolutely not. Young people in Milan are always helped. There are seniors like Favalli, Seedorf, Gattuso and others who are crucial for young players, as they were with me when I was a boy.
"At Milan. Balotelli would surely have done great things."
No-one has taken the No45 shirt at Milan?
"We keep it free for him. You never know in life!" replied Borriello.
