Italian striker Mario Balotelli has no plans making a return to AC Milan and accused the supporters of lacking respect and gratitude

The 28-year-old has been linked with a move back to Milan recently for a third spell as things between himself and OGC Nice fail to improve.

After a prolific two seasons at the Allianz Riviera, Balotelli is yet to find the net in all of his 10 Ligue 1 appearances this term with manager Patrick Vieira calling him out as “less than average” last month.

But Balotelli is clear that going back to Milan ain’t on the agenda and furiously hit out at some supporters – who were less than pleased with reports linking him back to the club.

“It is nice to see so many Milan supporters who would not like my unlikely come back to Milan,” Balotelli wrote on an Instagram story, via Fox Sports.

“It’s fine, one day you are needed and another day you are not. It is important to not have regrets.

“I have not planned any transfer so far.

“I wrote that because I want to highlight how there is no gratitude and no respect from people I will always love.”

Balotelli played for Milan in two separate spells between 2013 to 2016 and started out with their local rivals Inter Milan.
