Mario Balotelli has admitted he will surely celebrate if he scores for AC Milan against his old club Inter.

The Italy international has returned to his homeland with Milan, leaving English champions Manchester City for a fee of €20M plus €3M in add-ons.

Balotelli did turn out for Inter before signing for Manchester City in 2010 – and will now be playing against the Nerazzurri for their bitter rivals the Rossoneri.

And the 22-year-old is likely to do that for the first time on 24th February, when the two clash in the Milan derby.


But despite having been an Inter player, Balotelli will celebrate if he nets against his old club for their rivals.

"I would celebrate if I scored in that game", he told the press at his unveiling.

"I do not think the Inter fans have the right to be angry with me and obviously I will be whistled but that is football."

Balotelli also insisted he is proud to have the chance to play for Milan.

"It is an honour and a great opportunity, and so I hope to grow as a player and I am here as a man. I hope to stay as here as long as possible."
