MOST COMMENTED

Cesare Prandelli has said he did not fall out with Mario Balotelli during the World Cup but has admitted that the Italy striker lives in a place that is “far from reality.” The new Galatasaray coach said that he will miss Italy and that he hopes Balotelli will learn from the World Cup experience and become a better player. “Balotelli is fundamentally a good guy. He is not a bad person,” the former Fiorentina coach said. “But he lives in a place that is far away from reality. [In the end] That doesn’t mean anything. He is only 24 and has the possibility to build on this experience.”

    I hate to say it over and over again. Balotelli is a BUM and an angry black man. He is extremely prejudice and that shouldn't be present in the beautiful game. He hates the world and he hates all his Italian coaches. He is detrumental to any team that wants cohesion and teamwork. He doesn't desrve the Italian Jersey for that fact he doesn't deserve any until he learns the respect others if he wants respect for himself. Respect has to be earned and he has not warranted that anyway. On the contrary he has earned anomosity from all. You want to be cocky and arrogant than you be better the best. and he is not even close!
