AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri says Mario Balotteli could become one of the world’s most lethal forwards.

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri says Mario Balotteli could become one of the world’s most lethal forwards.

The 22-year-old striker, never far from controversy, has been in clinical form following his 22 million-euro transfer from Manchester City, scoring three goals in his first two games in Serie A.

“I am satisfied with what Mario is giving us on the pitch. But, he has the possibility of becoming a world-class player – if he devotes himself to football,” Allegri told reporters.

Milan’s coach said Balotteli’s potential brilliance is not a foregone conclusion, but expressed his hope the Italy international will make the most of his considerable promise.

“I hope he takes my advice,” Allegri said.

The former Cagliari coach, under pressure at times this season, also insisted he would still be at the club to coach Balotelli next season.

“I have never had any doubts that I’ll be here next season,” Allegri added.

“I have an agreement with the president and (chief executive Adriano) Galliani – this team has been rebuilt in a short space of time so we have to carry on with this project as it is.”

Milan are fifth in Serie A and chasing a Champions League place for next season.
