AC Milan youngster M’Baye Niang has taken the time to praise new team-mate Mario Balotelli after his impressive Rossoneri debut on Sunday.
The Italy star moved to San Siro from Manchester City in the closing days of the January transfer window, and celebrated his return to Serie A by netting a double in his new team’s 2-1 league win over Udinese at the weekend.
“I hope that Balotelli will help us climb in the table with all the quality he has,” Niang told RMC.
“He is a good guy and there is no reason to worry about anything. He is the type of guy who makes other people smile.”
Milan sit joint-fourth in the Serie A table following this weekend’s results, trailing leaders Juventus by 12 points.
