Balotelli loses his cool again

Oct 14 2013, 4:02am CDT | by IANS

Rome, Oct 14 (IANS) Italy striker Mario Balotelli still finds tough to control his temper.

Rome, Oct 14 — Italy striker Mario Balotelli still finds tough to control his temper.

When Italy arrived in Naples Sunday evening for their Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Armenia, Balotelli was reported by Sport Mediaset to have struck one of their television cameras and tried to knock it to the ground.

Balotelli seemed in an irritable mood Sunday morning when he posted a photograph of a headline in the Gazzetta dello Sport via Twitter: "Balotelli is ill, but will be there in Naples as a symbol against the Camorra."

"This is what you say! I am coming because football is wonderful and everyone should play it where they want, plus there's a game!!!!" he retorted.

Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Armenia will be preceded by a training session at a football pitch built on land confiscated from the Camorra - the Neapolitan Mafia.

Balotelli, who suffered from upset stomach those days, is apparently recovering as he scored a goal in Italy's game between ranks alongside Giuseppe Rossi upfront.

"Mario is feeling better," said Itlay head coach Cesare Prandelli.

Inter captain Javier Zanetti noted his former Inter teammate Balotelli is "a jazz musician" of football and needs to have a cool mind.

"I think he needs to find his balance and I hope he does. Mario has immense talent, but he needs to stay calm and do what he knows how to do," he said.

"We spoke many times and he listened, but he is one of those young people who will continue to make mistakes at his age. When you realize you've made a mistake, it helps you to grow."

"He is a jazz musician and that is certainly a quality, as he's one of those players who at any moment can bring out the winning move. He's good for Milan and especially for Italy, seeing as we are close to the World Cup," Zanetti said.

AC Milan vs. Manchester City: What Both Managers Learned

Jul 28 2014 1:01pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Coach Pippo Inzaghi said the result was partly on him. But the problems were nothing new. AC Milan could not and would not defend, and Manchester City won 5-1 on Sunday in the International Champions Cup. The matchup was always tough for the Rossoneri, a team with bad defensive tendencies against a club that never stops attacking. The one virtue of Manuel Pellegrini's side is that they do not relent. They pump their opponents ...

Now AC Milan have to think about the players they want to keep.  Of course we start with Mario Balotelli, who apparently "has never asked to be sold," said Milan CEO Adriano Galliani (h/t Daily Mail). "There’s a 99.9 percent chance of him staying, but you never know what will happen." Galliani loves to use decimal figures to describe a player's chance of leaving or coming.
