AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli left his football skills behind to try his hand at cooking on an Italian television show.

The former Manchester City forward, who has admitted to being inexperienced in the kitchen, donned an apron on Buon Appetito this week.

According to, Balotelli said on the show: "I have never cooked before in my life because my mother is so good at cooking that there was never any need for me to cook. Milan have given us a diet plan, but it is not all the players that are following it."
