FIGC president Giancarlo Abete has curbed Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli's enthusiasm after he claimed he was "second only to Lionel Messi", but did encourage him into believing he can aspire towards reaching new heights.
Balotelli is second best only to Messi? That's what this kid said? ROFLMAO. Mario, please don't act dumb. The second best player in the world is Xavi, everyone knows that. :p What's that? You want to be the 3rd best player in the world? /facepalm The 3rd best player in the world is Iniesta. You could settle in for 4th best.
