In a recent Instagram live chat with Fabio Cannavaro, Mario Balotelli discussed numerous topics, starting with the Italian national team and his relationship with Roberto Mancini:"I have a special relationship with him. If he selects me I'm happy, if he didn't select me I know he wouldn't have me sit on the bench. He needs to select those who deserve it. It helps me that the Euro was postponed..."
Balotelli was asked about a possible transfer to Napoli:"I tried, I would be very happy there. My daughter Pia would become an ultra leader, she supports Napoli. I always sing to her Brescia chants but she continues to support Napoli. When I brought her to the San Paolo she was so happy, hypnotized. It's always emotional to enter in that stadium, but the most beautiful one is San Siro"
Balotelli shared a backstory about Ibrahimovic:"When I arrived to Inter's senior squad I was sixteeen. One day he stopped by and said "You think you can play here? Do today's training and then you don't play again" Every time on the pitch he told me you are no good, forget about football and study"
