Cesare Prandelli is pleased with Mario Balotelli's return to form at AC Milan and is delighted to watch him and Stephan El Shaarawy play together at club level as well.

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has hailed striker Mario Balotelli for his performances for AC Milan since January.

The 22-year-old has scored four goals in four matches for the Rossoneri since joining them from Manchester City last month.

"I'm seeing a great Balotelli," he told QS. "He is a player regenerated by the fact that he is close to his family again.

"As the national team boss, I have to be delighted to see Balotelli and [Stephan] El Shaarawy playing alongside each other. They are not incompatible."

El Shaarawy has scored 16 goals in 25 Serie A appearances for Milan so far this season.
