Cesare Prandelli has warned Mario Balotelli that he will have to 'shut up' if he is to have a future in the game.
The Milan forward is currently serving a two-game suspension after abusing the fourth official during the Rossoneri's 2-2 draw with Fiorentina.
And the national team Coach has claimed that the young forward needs to learn not to react to provocation.
“Balotelli will always be provoked,” he told Rai Sport. “He has to learn to shut up and not react.
“A large part of the game is staying calm, and in this respect Mario can definitely improve.
“In the future he will be provoked more and more and he needs to learn to manage himself.”
The Azzurri boss also commented on this weekend's clash between the San Siro side and Juventus.
“I think it is going to be a spectacular game.
“Juve are close to the title and Milan are playing for third place – it's going to be a really good game.”
