    AC Milan striker Balotelli fined for smoking in train toilet

    Milan: AC Milan's maverick forward Mario Balotelli was caught smoking in the toilet on the train during the team's journey to Florence and will be fined, chief executive Adriano Galliani said on Sunday.

    Balotelli was ticked off by the train guard who told Galliani: "You need to pull his ears. He was smoking in the bathroom. Smoking is banned on Italian trains. "I want to say that we're going to fine him," Galliani said.

    Balotelli has scored seven goals in eight appearances and has managed to stay out of trouble since joining the club in January from Manchester City, where he was involved in a series of rows with manager Roberto Mancini. Milan, third in Serie A, were away to Fiorentina on Sunday.
