AC Milan whizkid Niang welcomes comparisons with Man City's Balotelli
Perhaps due to his early development and chaotic off the field lifestyle, Niang has been compared to Balotelli.
"It is pleasing to be compared to Balotelli, as he is a great striker, but we've never met. My idol is Ronaldo, as I fell in love with football during the years he was at Inter. He is the ideal forward in terms of technique, power and speed."
