AC Milan's midfield problems highlighted in narrow Empoli win

Goals from Carlos Bacca, second from left, and Luiz Adriano, far right, helped AC Milan sneak past Empoli on Saturday.

AC Milan picked up their first points of the season on Saturday night as they narrowly defeated Empoli 2-1 at the San Siro. While Sinisa Mihajlovic will be relieved to get his first points on the board, it was a far from convincing display from the Rossoneri.

The Serbian tactician made some surprise selection choices with the inclusion of Antonio Nocerino and Suso in the starting lineup. Ultimately, however, the move ended up backfiring on him.

Both midfielders were eventually withdrawn -- with...

Sinisa Mihajlovic furious with AC Milan players despite his side's first victory

Sinisa Mihajlovic was not happy at all after AC Milan's win over Empoli on Saturday.

AC Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic was livid and said his side "did not deserve to win" after Saturday's 2-1 victory over Empoli.

Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano provided the goals as Milan claimed their first win of the season, but the result did little to placate Mihajlovic after the game.

"We did not deserve to win," Mihajlovic told reporters. "Nothing has changed from last season. There was too much fear."

Mihajlovic took over afer Milan's finished 10th under Filippo Inzaghi last season.

Carlos Bacca celebrates with his teammates after scoring the opening goal for AC Milan on Saturday.

Mario Balotelli watched on as goals from fellow forwards Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano earned AC Milan their first win of the new Serie A season -- 2-1 against Empoli.

Italy international Balotelli rejoined the Rossoneri on a season-long loan from Liverpool this week but was an unused substitute as the home side scraped an unconvincing victory.

After a scrappy start, Milan opened the scoring in the 16th minute when a defence-splitting pass from Adriano set Bacca away.

What looked to be a heavy touch...

Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli is confident but fragile, autograph says

Mario Balotelli's nightmare spell at Liverpool was cut short this week when he joined AC Milan on loan.

As a marker of just how much scrutiny Mario Balotelli's return to Milan is being put under, Italian website Sportmediaset have employed the services of a professional calligrapher to examine the striker's autograph.

Indeed, Sportmediaset have posted a video of Candida Livatino's expert analysis and apparently, Balotelli's squiggle reveals he is a "confident but fragile" young man.

Who'd have thought?

"The signature of Mario Balotelli is very interesting and it says a lot about him," Livatino claims.

Mario Balotelli must show he 'deserves' Italy call-up, says Antonio Conte

The ESPN FC panel discuss Mario Balotelli's return to AC Milan, where Shaka Hislop still believes in his talent.

ROME -- If Mario Balotelli wants to return to Italy's squad, coach Antonio Conte says he'll have to show that he deserves a spot.

But Italy will call up Major League Soccer players Andrea Pirlo and Sebastian Giovinco for European Championship qualifiers against Malta and Bulgaria next week.

Balotelli hasn't played for Italy since the Azzurri were eliminated in the first round of last year's World Cup. On Thursday, he was loaned back to AC Milan after scoring only one goal in the Premier League for...
