AC Milan firebrand Balotelli: I know I am not very diplomatic...

AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli insists he's not a bad lad.

Speaking with BuoneNotizie, he confessed to his faults.

"I know, I am not very diplomatic. I am instinctive and if I have an idea then I'll express it without problems, but I do not judge people I don't know. I'd like others to do the same.

"Judging people is damaging. It's not so much for me, as I can survive certain things, but the people around me, my teammates and my family, who read things that were either exaggerated or invented.

"I can only say I am sorry, I cannot do more, because I know what is true and what isn't.

"Going back, I certainly wouldn't throw the Inter shirt to the ground. Many other things are changing compared to my past... I am trying to improve certain attitudes. But I remain, and will remain, myself."
