Mario Balotelli has never been one to shy away from controversy. The striker’s wild antics during his time at Manchester City and Milan have been well documented. However, despite his issues on and off the pitch, Italian head coach. Cesare Prandelli, has always been a big supporter of Super Mario.
In a recent interview with La Stampa, Prandelli spoke about the Milan striker and how he believes Balotelli can do great things in 2014. “In media terms, it will be Balotelli’s World Cup, but he needs to do extraordinary things now. Along with Balotelli, It will be the World Cup of Leo Messi and Luis Suarez, as these are among the three best players in the world.”
Prandelli would go on to discuss several other strikers that could be brought to Brazil in June, “El Shaarawy needs to rediscover his calm. I was always fond of Destro, while Rossi is even more motivated than he was before”.
