Inter fans waved inflated bananas and jeered AC Milan's Mario Balotelli when he faced his former club for the first time since transferring from Manchester City to Milan last
Balotelli kept his composure and held a finger to his mouth to signal for quiet in the second half of the game that ended 1-1.
"Balotelli did very well not to react to the provocations, I'm just sorry he wasn't able to score,'' Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri said. ''He had a great first half. Let's not forget that he's 22 years old and he was playing against his former squad. It's to be expected that he felt pressure for this match.''
Inter supporters waved inflated bananas and whistled at Balotelli, who is a native of Ghana. He was facing Inter for the first time since transferring from Manchester City to Milan last month. Balotelli, who was born in Italy to Ghanaian parents, played for Inter from 2006-10, helping the club to three titles in his final season with the team.
