A special message from MSN:

While Christmas is a time of joy for most of us, that's not the case for the UK's most vulnerable children and young people. We've partnered with giving platform Benevity to raise funds for two charities - the NSPCC and The Children's Society – to try to help change that.

Mario Balotelli has accused some AC Milan fans of lacking respect and gratitude following their derisory response to rumours linking him with a return to San Siro.

The outspoken Italy striker is in his third season with Nice, although he is yet to register a goal in 2018-19.

Speculation began to circulate recently that Balotelli could complete a move back to the Rossoneri, where he spent two spells either side of an ultimately unsuccessful switch to Liverpool.

That talk was met with scorn by some sections of the Milan faithful, prompting Balotelli to post a riposte via an Instagram story.

"It is nice to see so many Milan supporters who would not like my unlikely come back to Milan," he wrote.

"It's fine, one day you are needed and another day you are not. It is important to not have regrets.

"I have not planned any transfer so far.

"I wrote that because I want to highlight how there is no gratitude and no respect from people I will always love."
