Balotelli: I love to hear Man City fans sing my name
Balotelli has been criticised for the lack of joy he shows when playing.
But he told the Mail on Sunday: "I want City's supporters to know this.
"When I heard them chant my name the other night, as I scored those three goals, it gave me a really warm feeling inside. Sometimes I don't smile outwardly but I am smiling inside and that is how it was when I heard them."
