Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has been full of praise about his former San Siro teammate and current Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.
Sneijder believes that Balotelli has everything what it requires to become one of the best in the world, but at the same time he advised the 20-year-old City star to become a more controlled person both on and off the field.
Here, it is noteworthy that Mario Balotelli very often makes the newspaper headlines for all the wrong reasons. He was also fully criticized by former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho for his attitude.
However, Sneijder has rated Balotelli as one of the top class and immensely potential player whom, he thinks, could once be in the same class of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“He has a personality. Sometimes as a player he is amazing because he can do crazy things on the pitch. But outside of the pitch he can do crazy things, stupid things sometimes. He knows this because I talked many times with him last year. He is still young and sometimes he loses control”
Wesley Sneijder, who was one of the best players of World Cup 2010, may have said some good things about Mario Balotelli, who moved to Manchester City during last summer for a transfer fee of £24 million, but whether the Italian international would be a success story depends on his ability to keep himself away from controversies.
