Jan 30, 2013 4:47 PM GMT
AC Milan attacker Robinho is confident that Mario Balotelli will succeed with the club and help the team move in the right direction.
The Italy international will undergo a medical at the San Siro side on Wednesday to complete his move back to Serie A from Manchester City, and the Brazilian is looking forward to teaming up with his new team-mate.
"Balotelli is a great player and will definitely help the squad. We are happy he has arrived and we are all going to welcome him. Let’s hope he does well for Milan," Robinho told Milan Channel.
The Brazilian then went on to discuss Milan's chances in Serie A, and stressed they are at a crucial stage of the season as they chase a Champions League spot.
"There's enthusiasm in the changing room and we're getting better. There are still plenty of games to go and every three points will help us move up the table," he said.
"The beginning of the campaign wasn't good, and once more the Italian league is proving to be difficult, but at the moment we're experiencing a good run of form in this crucial point of the season, and with 16 games to go anything is possible."
Milan have climbed to fifth spot in the table following their good results in recent weeks.
