Balotelli could win the Golden Ball, says Roberto Mancini, who believes the striker has great potential. “If he manages to cast off some of his ‘immature’ behaviour, he could become one of the best players in the world, I think that City have had a great coup in signing him. Inter? I think Mario had decided a while ago to quit Italy because despite everything he was still attached to Inter”, he said. As far as Inter is concerned, the coach believes his former team is still tops to win the ‘Scudetto’: “They are still in the lead, they’ve been the strongest for the last 4-5 years”.
