Mario Balotelli has been a somewhat troubled kid since the beginning of his professional career. The Italian striker joined Man City from Inter and he has been the centre of the English media. The most recent incident involved Balotelli throwing darts at youths because he was bored.
Balotelli accepts that there are areas of his personality that he needs to work on, with it important that he learns how to control his demons.
He claims a meeting with his idol Ronaldo would bring about said changes, with the former World Player of the Year the man he admires above all others.
“If you introduce me to Ronaldo, I swear I’ll behave until I give up playing football,” claimed Balotelli.
“I have never met him, but when you see the idol of a lifetime it can change you. It can change your way of being.
“I don’t know how I can explain it. There are many great players, but Ronaldo was the greatest and so one word from him is worth more than a thousand of all the others.”
He added: “In any case, I already behave myself fairly well, but I’ll try to stop doing those stupid little things. These things happen.”
