Balotelli, Bertolacci back in AC Milan training

The Rossoneri have been boosted ahead of Sunday’s trip to Verona with the return of the pair, as they look to take maximum points from Serie A’s bottom club

Striker Mario Balotelli and midfielder Andrea Bertolacci have returned to group training with AC Milan after a number of weeks on the sidelines with injuries.

Liverpool loanee Balotelli has not featured for Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side since their 1-0 Serie A defeat to Genoa on September 27 due to a groin problem, while Bertolacci’s knee injury has seen him miss out for over a month.

Milan’s form has been mixed in their absence – they currently sit eighth in Serie A – but the pair returned to train with their team-mates at Milanello on Wednesday.

Reports have suggested the pair could form part of Mihajlovic’s squad for the visit of rock-bottom Verona on Sunday, although the club are yet to confirm a possible return date.

Milan have lost just one of their last eight league games, but were held to a disappointing goalless draw by strugglers Carpi on Sunday.
