Mario Balotelli AC Milan striker will miss the Rossoneri’s match against on Saturday due to a right thigh injury.

The 23-year-old has been in the headlines over the past few days after getting in a scuffle with a cameraman in Naples before scoring the equalizer in Italy’s 2-2 draw against Armenia on Tuesday night.

The former Inter and Manchester City star was set to return from his three-match Serie A ban this weekend but it appears as though his return will be delayed due to a right thigh injury.

“Mario Balotelli has reported a muscular pain in his right thigh. The player will be monitored in the following days to ascertain the extent of the problem and the appropriate treatment,” a statement read on the Rossoneri’s official website.

Milan will be hoping Balotelli can recover for Tuesday’s clash against in the Champions League, though his presence is not certain at this time.

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed.
