Balotelli, who played for Inter Milan when Mourinho was coach, said that there is a "ruthlessness" in both coaches that brings out the best in the players under them.
"In Clarence Seedorf, I see the ruthlessness and will to win of Mourinho," he told Chi. "Seedorf has been a champion as a player. He won everything there was to win, so I think we can trust in him.
"Massimiliano Allegri was a good coach. He won us a championship and I wish him the best for the rest of his career.
"But, again, I'm sure that Seedorf will help us. He's already well acquainted with the environment, so he will know well which players he should rely on."
Balotelli joined Milan from Manchester City last January.
