The promising Frenchman is hopeful that the former Manchester City man can propel the San Siro side up the table and has nothing but positive words for his new team-mate
The Italy star moved to San Siro from Manchester City in the closing days of the January transfer window, and celebrated his return to Serie A by netting a double in his new team's 2-1 league win over Udinese at the weekend.
"I hope that Balotelli will help us climb in the table with all the quality he has," Niang told RMC.
"He is a good guy and there is no reason to worry about anything. He is the type of guy who makes other people smile."
Milan sit joint-fourth in the Serie A table following this weekend's results, trailing leaders Juventus by 12 points.
