Orlando (Florida): Brazilian footballer Kaka insisted AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli to make the best use of his skills and fulfil his potential after his move to the Italian club this summer.
The 25-year-old Italian returned to Milan after a failed stint at English Premier League (EPL) side Liverpool, in which he scored just one goal following a 20 million euro move last summer.
"Mario is a very talented player, there is no doubt about it," Kaka was quoted as saying by goal.com on Wednesday.
"But he must understand that this is not an easy time for him and he really needs to find some motivation in order to use his talent to help the team," the former AC Milan footballer, who currently plays as an attacking midfielder for Orlando City SC in Major League Soccer said.
"He is the type of player who can easily change a match at any time and I hope he can lend a hand to Milan's season," Kaka said.
Milan finished 10th in Serie A last season but have invested heavily in their squad over the summer as they look to return to European football next term.
