Gabriel Batistuta complained Mario Balotelli “really gets on my nerves” for wasting his talent.
The Fiorentina legend gave a Press conference yesterday, but the Corriere dello Sport claims he continued chatting to some journalists off the record.
“What do I think of Balotelli? I was not born a football player,” Batistuta is quoted as saying.
“I had to become a player with hard work, sweat and sacrifice. Balotelli, but also others, have everything I wanted to have, but they don’t take advantage of it.
“That really gets on my nerves.”
