His club AC Milan was not pleased by the Balotelli’s behavior.

“I have my own ideas about social networks and I've tried many times but our lawyer has always stopped me, saying that it would violate individual rights,” Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said, according to Associated Press.


Galliani adds, “In contracts it's written what players can and cannot do, but we can't do anything regarding their private lives. We do it vocally but that's not enough.”
