New AC Milan signing Mario Balotelli is settling in well with his new team. He scored twice as Milan beat Udinese. However the striker still insists he has a lot of work to do before being 100% fit.
The 22-year-old striker was set to start from the bench for Milan but striker Giampaolo Pazzini picked up a injury before the match and Balotelli was set to make his full debut for his new club.
He scored after 25 minutes to put the Rossoneri ahead, but a goal from Giampiero Pinzi looked to have settled the game as a draw. However, a late - and very controversial - penalty was awarded and the striker calmly put away the spot kick to secure a stoppage-time victory.
Balotelli told reporters after the game: "I was supposed to be on the bench and Pazzo [Pazzini] was meant to play but he had a problem. I played from the start and it went well."
After the match he explained his joy with having the chance to play for Milan and revealed that he's still not 100% fit.
"I'm happy even if the game was difficult," Balotelli added. "I’m strong but my legs are still heavy. I haven't played many games and I have to train a lot."
The win leaves the Rossoneri level on points with archrivals Inter, and fourth in Serie A.
