Milan president Silvio Berlusconi appeared to shut the door yesterday when describing Balotelli as a "rotten apple".
"I'm sorry for what Berlusconi said," declared Mino Raiola.
"Mario and I are sorry, we cannot say that we liked it. Berlusconi does not know him, all those who know him love him.
"(Adriano) Galliani (Milan vice-president) knows him and loves him."
