Rome, November 20 - Italy forward Mario Balotelli
has what it takes to join the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and
Lionel Messi and become one of the world's best soccer players,
Roberto Mancini, his coach at Manchester City, said on Tuesday.
But Mancini also suggested that the 22-year-old forward,
who is also famous for his temperamental streak and his bizarre
off-field escapades, needs to work harder in training to achieve
his full potential.
"He has everything to be one of the best players in the
world," Mancini told a press conference.
"He could be like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi if he
understands that to be like this you should work hard".
Balotelli is a doubt for City's Champions League game
against Real Madrid on Wednesday because of a back problem
although Mancini has left him out of his team for some recent
matches even when he was fit.
"Mario off the pitch is a fantastic guy. Sometimes he
doesn't understand how his job is important for his life but I
hope he can understand this quickly," added Mancini.
"He is 22 but life can go quickly. He needs to understand
that to be like Ronaldo and Messi he should work hard, his mind
should be always on his job, not on the other things that are
not important."
