Balotelli has broken up with Raffaella Fico and their daughter Pia, who was born on December 5.
“Am I in love? Yes, but I am not good at talking about it. I am shy,” said Balotelli about new girlfriend Fanny Neguesha in Vanity Fair.
“She is determined, confident and generous. In a short space of time she found herself in sync with me. I could spend my whole life with someone like this.
“Thanks to Fanny I have rediscovered the balance that I need in my work. She puts our relationship first and foremost, so there are no distractions or rows before games.
“It’s not easy to be with me, because I almost have to give up on a private life, as I am constantly exposed to the public. I have no Facebook or Twitter accounts, because anything I say risks being turned around into something negative.”
