Mihajlovic was assistant coach at the Nerazzurri when Balotelli broke into the first team at Inter, and he still has fond memories of the 22-year-old.
"Mario is a great guy. I believe that at a club like Milan, where they understand that he will have to change his attitude a bit, he can make the difference," Mihajlovic was quoted as saying by Undici. "Compared to the Balotelli I knew at Inter, I think his attitude has worsened a bit, but that's Mario. When you sign him, you get the entire package.
"I believe that he will do well at Milan, though. He didn't seem to like the fog in Manchester much..."
Balotelli has netted three goals in two appearances since joining Milan.
