AC Milan ace Balotelli admits he misses English fans…but not the food or weather!

Mario Balotelli admits he misses the interaction with English supporters but says the weather, the food and the need to drive can remain a distant memory.

The AC Milan star left Manchester City to return to Italy in January 2013 and although he is loving life at the San Siro, he does admit to missing the English fans.

"I miss England's fans, while I do not miss the food, or the weather, or the manner of driving a car," he told FourFourTwo.

"But fans of City, yes I miss them. But the AC Milan fans are fantastic too. Most of my memories about Manchester are happy because I enjoyed it there.

"It was not a shock for me to move to England and there is not a big difference between the two clubs."
