Balotelli: I’m Not Crazy But I Do Strange Things


Mario Balotelli insists he’s not crazy, although he does acknowledge that he “can do strange things” from time to time.

For example, Balotelli recently had to evacuate his house in England after fireworks were let off in his bathroom. And he has been questioned by Naples prosecutors over a visit with the Camorra crime syndicate.

Speaking at Italy’s training camp on Wednesday, the Manchester City striker was also asked about constantly ending up pictured on the gossip pages with an array of women.

Balotelli says the media “tends to talk more about my private life than what I do on the pitch. It’s normal but it bothers me. … I’m not crazy, not at all—even though I can do strange things.”
