Balotelli remains a controversial figure for club and country and Boban, who spent a decade on the books of the Rossoneri, launched a withering attack on the former Manchester City player.

“Let’s stop always talking about this Balotelli,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “In his life all he has done is sit on the bench at other clubs.

“He will always be smaller than Milan and Milan will always be bigger than him.

“In my Milan side he would have carried bags for players such as Marco Van Basten, George Weah and Andriy Shevchenko.”

The striker is struggling for form on the pitch and continues to make headlines off it after turning up late for training on two consecutive days - and sparked speculation over his future having sent a cryptic tweet on Sunday.

“He would have been slapped by people like Paolo Maldini, Marcel Desailly, Sebastiano Rossi, Alessandro Costacurta and Franco Baresi for not arriving on time,” the Croatian added.

“His listless attitude demonstrates that he is unable to comprehend certain things with his brain, he doesn’t understand what wearing that shirt means.

“He should learn from Kaka, a boy who has won the Champions League, a World Cup, a Golden Ball. He’s certainly richer than Balotelli, yet he runs and works like a kid.”

Balotelli has three goals in eight Serie A games so far this season.
