Team-mate Gianluigi Buffon and international boss Cesare Prandelli were virtually ignored as the lags mobbed the former Inter striker.

During the visit which included a question and answer session Balotelli revealed: “I accepted right away when they asked me to come here. Boys, do not give up, everyone has a chance in life.”

Balotelli started the match on the bench but came on as a late substitute and helped to a 1-0 win with fellow sub Giampaolo Pazzini scoring the only goal of the game.
