Balotelli thanks Mazzarri

Mario Balotelli has thanked Napoli Coach Walter Mazzarri “for his kind words, but I am a Manchester City player.”

The tactician praised SuperMario this week and said he'd “go crazy” with joy if they got to work together in Naples.

“I met Mazzarri last year during an awards ceremony in Sorrento. I thank him for his kind words,” Balotelli told newspaper La Repubblica.

“As for Napoli, I have nothing else to say. I am a Manchester City player.”
