Carlo Ancelotti believes Mario Balotelli “is the right man to lead Italy” in tonight’s Euro 2012 quarter-final with England.
“SuperMario knows the English defence, plus he is faster than Joleon Lescott and John Terry put together,” the former Chelsea manager told A Bola.
“Italy need Balotelli now, as he is the man who can lead the Nazionale to conquer Euro 2012.”
Ancelotti is currently in charge of French side Paris Saint-Germain.
