AC Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic wants the duo of Mario Balotelli and Jeremy Menez to give more to the club.
Balotelli has started just three Serie A matches since arriving on loan from Liverpool, while Menez has struggled to establish himself in the side this season following a back problem.
The Frenchman has come under scrutiny after reportedly being involved in a training-ground row with the coach but surprisingly the Italy international have earned praise from the manager for keeping his notorious off-field indiscretions to a minimum.
“It is down to Menez and Balotelli whether they start or not,” said the Serbian.
“It depends on how they train, but when they give their total commitment, they will be chosen.
“I have spoken to Menez and I hope I made myself clear. I explained everything well to him because I wanted him to understand my point of view and I think he has understood the message.”
Mihajlovic believes new additions will be required if Milan are to improve next season.
“A few quality investments are needed to improve. Players that are motivated, as well as young and talented and that can become top-class in the future, should be brought in,” he added.
“You have to choose carefully based on the person, his abilities, his motivation and whether he is suited to the playing style you have in mind.”
