Rome, January 15 - AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi
has apologised to Mario Balotelli for saying the Italy forward
was a "rotten apple", saying his words were misconstrued.
Berlusconi made the comments earlier this month when he
dismissed speculation that Milan wanted to sign the talented,
temperamental 22-year-old from Manchester City in the January
transfer window.
The ex-premier, who is leading the centre right's campaign
for next month's Italian elections, also said "Balotelli does
not convince me as a man" on another occasion.
But he struck a very different tone in an interview with
Sky Italia.
"My comments regarded the fact that you need positive
presences in the locker room," Berlusconi said.
"They were not directed at Balotelli and I apologise if
they may have been interpreted as being directed at him".
The change of tone was seen by the Italian sports media as
a possible sign that Milan may try to sign Balotelli after all.
