Berlusconi's brother makes up to Balotelli after racist slur
Italy forward 'little black boy of the family' said AC Milan VP07 February, 19:50
The two reportedly exchanged words at Milanello, the club's training facility, before shaking hands. The exchange came after Berlusconi ended a political meeting in Varedo, near Milan, on Sunday by suggesting the participants wrap up their business in time for the game against Udinese in which Balotelli, who moved to Milan from English champions Manchester City last week, was to score the double that earned his new side a 2-1 win.
"And now let's see the little black boy of the family, the hot-head," he is recorded as saying. Balotelli, a talented, temperamental striker who was born in Palermo to Ghanaian parents, did not comment on the remarks.
However he recently noted that "racism is very difficult to fight...you have to hang in and eventually prevail".
