Liverpool flop Balotelli watches on from subs bench as AC Milan record first win

Mario Balotelli has been made to wait for his second AC Milan debut, after Sinsia Mihajlovic left the Italian on the bench for the entirety of the 2-1 win over Empoli at the weekend.


Balotelli joined the Serie A giants on a season-long loan from Liverpool during the week, but watched the match from the substitute's bench as goals to Carlos Bacca and Luis Adriano gave the Rossoneri their first win of the season.

'Super Mario' didn't seem too concerned at being left out, posting an Intsagram after the game congratulating his new teammates on the win.
