AC Milan defender Adil Rami has taken aim at teammate Mario Balotelli. Rami has questioned Balotelli's attitude.

"Balotelli is a very talented player, he is among the best in the world... when he can be bothered!"

Rami also remarked: "It's not easy to talk about Mario, but he is one of the best players in the world and often decisive. Is he fired up? We are professional football players and are always fired up.

"It is our duty to prepare as best as possible, but there's an even more important thing to put on the field... the joy of being happy to do this for a living."
