Take it for real, it’s not a joke!
Inter Milan’s ‘stubborn’ Italian midfielder of Ghanaian origins, Mario Balotelli, has revealed a huge ambition:
He wants to surpass Cristiano Ronaldo in the world of football!
Mario Balotelli meanwhile is not a friend of the Real Madrid and Portugal superstar.
Expressing himself during Le Iene, a popular Italian program, the Inter Milan young man recalled how his aim to become greater than Cristiano Ronaldo started. Balotelli took us back to the Manchester United vs Inter Milan last 16 UEFA Champions League clash which ended in favor of the Red Devils thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s influence.
“I asked for Cristiano Ronaldo’s jersey [after the match],” Balotelli evoked.
“And he told me he had already given it [the jersey] to someone else.”
“I replied, ‘I’ll become stronger than you!’”
What a great challenge against the world’s most expensive player, Cristiano Ronaldo. At the moment though, 19-year-old Mario Balotelli is yet to feature for Ghana or Italy’s senior football team.
