Mario Balotelli | Suspect temperament

Football News

Mario Balotelli has struggled with his temperament since the very start of his professional career with Inter Milan. Bust-ups with players and coaches, negative headline-grabbing off-field antics and on-field indiscretions made him a ticking time bomb.

While he has calmed down a bit since leaving Manchester City for AC Milan, the Italy international still has his moments. The 23-year-old is cool as a cucumber, but can lose his mind during heated situations on the pitch. If he is to become the player we all know he can be then he needs to cut these incidents out of his game entirely.

Balotelli also has a tendency to stroll around the pitch, which no set of supporters want to see from one of their players. You might be good, Mario, but you’re not too good for hard work.
