Former Italy striker Toto Schillaci says Mario Balotelli needs to learn how to use his head while out on the pitch.
The controversial striker has come in for severe criticism since Italy’s disappointing World Cup campaign, where they were eliminated in the Group Stages.
“I think Balotelli is a great player,” Schillaci told Gianluca Di Marzio. “Naturally, in order to be a champion you need to show it on and off the pitch.
“I don’t like some [of his] attitudes, but everyone does as they wish. I’m sorry because he has great potential and he could do more compared to what he does.
“He needs to understand that in football you need to use your head as well as with your feet.”
