‘Don’t Ask me for Interviews Again’ – Balotelli Declares War on French Media
Mario Balotelli has declared war on newsmen in France, saying he will not be giving any more interviews after the negative coverage that trailed his comments on Paris Saint Germain striker, Edinson Cavani.
In a wide-ranging interview on French radio station RMC with former France star Christophe Dugarry, Balotelli spoke about his experiences of suffering racist abuse on the pitch and his perception of his colleagues in the Ligue 1.
The Italy bad boy also revealed his hopes of receiving an international call-up to return to the Azzurri, but it was his comments about PSG forward Cavani that made headlines.
According to the French media, Balotelli described Cavani as “not a phenomenon” and said he rated Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao as better players in Ligue 1.
The Nice striker has however lashed out at the media in a social media post about the way his quotes were portrayed, Goal writes.
“I spoke about amazing young players, I spoke about racism, I spoke about Italy, all those newspaper could get was about the Cavani story… you just ridiculous seriously…,” Balotelli wrote on Instagram.
“Seriously don’t ask me for interviews again… no one. Balotelli isn’t a game, [he] is a person with [an] opinion so get your owns [sic] to judge on it.
“Really isn’t the fact of another stupid lie story coming out that bothers me but the fact that I spoke about society real problem and all that they could get was that? That’s why the society and new generation will grow weaker and weaker.”
Apparently, U.S. President Donald Trump isn’t the only one having a problem with ‘Fake News’. Lol…
