Robinho: Balotelli will help AC Milan

The Brazilian attacker has little doubt that the Italy star striker will be a success at San Siro, and has stressed his side have reached a crucial stage of the season
AC Milan attacker Robinho is confident that Mario Balotelli will succeed with the Rossoneri and help the team move in the right direction.

The Italy international will undergo a medical at the San Siro side on Wednesday to complete his move back to Serie A from Manchester City, and the Brazilian is looking forward to teaming up with his new team-mate.

"Balotelli is a great player and will definitely help the squad. We are happy he has arrived and we are all going to welcome him. Let’s hope he does well for Milan," Robinho told Milan Channel.

The Brazilian attacker then went on to discuss Milan's chances in Serie A, and stressed it is at a crucial stage of the season as it chases a Champions League spot.

"There’s enthusiasm in the changing room and we’re getting better. There are still plenty of games to go and every three points will help us move up the table," Robinho said.

"The beginning of the campaign wasn't good, and once more the Italian league is proving to be difficult, but at the moment we’re experiencing a good run of form in this crucial point of the season, and with 16 games to go anything is possible."

Milan has climbed to fifth spot in the table following its good results in recent weeks.
