Balotelli was hit by a three-match ban this week.

“Mario is fundamental for us and he can be compared to Ibrahimovic. Mario is someone who needs to be beaten up on the pitch, as it’s the only way to stop him. He’s a lovely lad and an exemplary professional, so I really have nothing bad to say about him," said Boateng.
