The Argentine hasn’t entirely changed his opinion on Balotelli, having played against and alongside the fiery teenager.
Milito said: “I must be absolutely honest here, when I played against him – and he knows this – I wanted to kill him! Now that he is my teammate, I still want to kill him!
“That’s what Mario is like. He certainly needs to grow, is a lad who requires maturity and time. When he understands where he is and starts to listen to the people he ought to be listening to, I am sure he’ll become a fantastic champion. Everyone knows his talent.”
