When it comes to personalities, there's barely two people on earth who clash more than Mario Balotelli and Jose Mourinho.

The pair were regularly at loggerheads whilst at Inter Milan, leading the latter to dub the former "unmanageable" once Balotelli had left for Manchester City.

However it seems as though they do share a mutual respect of some kind. Mourinho previously described their two years together as a fun experience, and now Balotelli has joked that Mourinho was like "a grandfather" at Inter Milan.

Speaking to the Daily Mail the controversial striker pointed out that although the current Chelsea boss liked to act serious and may recall times when the Inter players caused him problems, he ultimately had fun at the Serie A side.

"Jose [Mourinho] acts like a grandpa and pretends we caused him a lot of trouble - but he has admitted to me that he had the most fun coaching players like us," Balotelli said.

"He knew there was never going to be a boring moment for him."

The Italian striker is currently enjoying his time at AC Milan, whom he joined in January of this year, and has so far scored 17 goals for the Rossoneri.
