Choice Of Words Could Have Been Better
According to reports currently circulating the tabloids Mario Balotelli has promised Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini that he will buck up and sort his head out. In return Bobby Manc is expected to forgive and forget his fellow countryman's tantrums, dart throwing at fellow colleagues and future compromising and embarrassing comments.
So from now on we shouldn't be reading comments similar to these..
Balotelli on Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, his former coach at Inter Milan.
'Mourinho is the best coach in the world, but as a man he still needs to learn manners and respect [Roberto Mancini] is the most important coach I've ever had. He'll soon become the No 1 in the world. But already now, in terms of human qualities, he is two kilometres ahead of Mourinho. Wait, make that ten kilometres.'
What Balotelli allegedly chanted at Jenny Thompson, the prostitute Wayne Rooney slept with, in a Manchester restaurant.
'Roo-ney! Roo-ney! Roo-ney!'
After winning the Tuttosport Golden Boy award.
'Who else would have won it other than me? There is only one [of the former winners] who is a bit stronger than me - [Lionel] Messi. All of the others are way behind me.'
Interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
'I don't believe Leo Messi deserved the Ballon d'Or, as it should've gone to Wesley Sneijder."'
Gazzetta dello Sport again.
'England is far ahead of the rest in terms of stadia and far behind in terms of its media. The newspapers are just trash.'
Balotelli assesses Arsenal's Jack Wilshere. The man who finished runner-up for the coveted Golden Boy prize.
'What's he called? Wil...? No, I have not heard of him yet, but next time I play against Arsenal I will have to pay attention. Maybe I could show him the Golden Boy and remind him that I won it.'
The words Balotelli said to Italian coach Cesare Prandelli, according to Prandelli.
'I need help. I always mess everything up'
In Gazzetta dello Sport.
'Our attack of Balotelli-Tevez-Dzeko is the best in the world. We are better even than Barcelona and Real Madrid, and certainly better than the Premier League leaders, Manchester United, whose main striker [ Wayne Rooney] has scored just three times this season. He is a very good player but not the best in Manchester. United fans stop me in the street and say, 'Mario, come to us'.'
After police demanded to know why a 20-year-old, who speaks faltering English, was carrying £5,000 cash in his back pocket after crashing his Audi A8 the Italian said...
'Because I am rich.'
Everyone should be given a second chance, including Balotelli. Now knuckle down lad and lets see you help your team-mates reach the FA Cup final and of course, finishing the season in a top four place.
