Was it ultras down there celebrating? Glad theyre enthusiastic about his return.
Yes. I've never seen a player respond to such a welcome by jumping with the fans and joining in on the anti-Inter chants.
What's telling about the vid is the reverential attitude towards Berlusconi. It's no secret that he uses Milan to recreate a winning image for himself ahead of elections (or when his coalition government was struggling, hence Robinho and Zlatan) and this is no different. Balotelli's given him a huge boost in polls ahead of this month's election.
Berlusconi: "Balotelli is the better Mario. He scored two goals, and made Germans cry. Monti scored a property tax, and made Italians cry."
I don't think it's strictly a political buy though. Aside from the quality Balotelli brings and the impact such a signing has on the squad, he'll also help increase ticket and shirt sales a great deal. It's like signing an Italian Beckham.

Balotelli's is having a great start at Milan as he has scored 4 goals in his three-game stay. I think being in Italy means a lot to him. He might get on his top form soon!

His move to AC Milan has been the best for both sides. Hope they bring rather than sell players in the summer. I'm looking forward to their next Scudetto run. Milan has never lost this year, too bad they had a bad Serie A start.
