Balotelli laughs off bad boy tag and admits he misses English fans but not the food or weather
AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has laughed off accusations that he is a bad boy, and claimed he would like to be even worse.
During his time at Manchester City between 2010 and 2013, Balotelli became notorious for a number of stunts including letting off fireworks from the bathroom window of his house and throwing a dart at one of the club’s youth players.
The Italy international also won the Premier League and FA Cup while at the Etihad and helped City to a stunning 6-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford, before leaving for Milan.

In an interview with FourFourTwo magazine claimed that too much had been made of his behaviour, saying: ‘Me, a bad boy? I would like to be more bad.’
The 23-year-old also said that he missed the fans in the Premier League and had fond memories of his time at City, although he was happy to leave behind other aspects of life in England.
‘I miss England’s fans, while I do not miss the food, or the weather, or the manner of driving a car.
‘But fans of City, yes I miss them. But the AC Milan fans are fantastic too. Most of my memories about Manchester are happy because I enjoyed it there.
‘It was not a shock for me to move to England and there is not a big difference between the two clubs (Man City and AC Milan).’
