10 Reasons To Make You Think Mario Balotelli Might Be An Idiot

Mario Balotelli is undoubtedly a very talented footballer. But when he isn’t footballing excellently he does have a tendency to come out with some total rubbish. Here then are 10 of his most quotable quotes…

10. “England is far ahead of the rest in terms of stadia and far behind in terms of its media. They are just trash.”

9. “Silvio Berlusconi says he (Antonio Cassano) is the best Italian talent. He’s wrong or he doesn’t know Balotelli.

8. “Mourinho is the best coach in the world, but as a man he still needs to learn manners and respect”

7. “I am really happy to have won the Golden Boy 2010, but who else should have won it if not me? Two years ago I finished sixth and in 2009 in fourth. Now it is my turn.”

6.”Jack who?  Wil? No, I don’t know him but the next time I play against Arsenal I will keep a close eye on him. Perhaps I can show him the Golden Boy trophy and remind him that I won it.”

5. “I want City’s supporters to know this: When I heard them chant my name it gave me a really warm feeling inside. Sometimes I don’t smile outwardly but I am smiling inside.”

4. Man City boss, Roberto Mancini: “Every day I fight against Mario and sometimes I would like to give him a punch.” Balottelli’s response: “He couldn’t. I do Thai kick-boxing”

3.“Wayne Rooney is a very good player, but not the best in Manchester.”

2. Prior to dumping his girlfriend …”I’m back to make you change, but never mind, you’re sunk. Everything is against you tomorrow, bye!”

1.“There is only one player who is a little stronger than me — Messi. All the others are behind me.”
