Home / Soccer Fans / Balotelli: “Rooney isn’t even the best striker in Manchester”


Mario Balotelli, everyones favorite Manchester City jersey clad blabber mouth, has just called out Wayne Rooney saying:

“He [Rooney] is a very good player but not the best [striker] in Manchester,”

Never one to shy away from controversy, Balotelli has also recently lampooned runner up for an award for Europe’s best young player, Jack Wilshere, asking “Who’s that?” and saying he had never heard of him. This time, he also taken a shot tat the Manchester United supporters, which is sure to earn him some hugs and kisses next derby day, saying that in reality, the United fans love him, and want him to join them instead. Now few would disagree with that on the red side of Manchester, but they ‘ll be none to happy tio hear this bit of the qoute:

“But I dream of beating them because I know how much the City fans care, they are wonderful with me.”

Continuing on his rant, Balotelli expressed his confidence in the striking team at Manchester City saying they had the best and were even better than Barcelona. If they make the Champions League, he may be able to test that theory next year.
