Mario Balotelli says he'll happily play for incoming Inter Milan coach Rafa Benitez.

Inter have not officially appointed Benitez, but yesterday President Massimo Moratti confirmed a deal was done and they were just waiting for the signature on the contract.

"I followed his progress at Liverpool and I like his mentality and system," Balotelli told Sky Sport Italia.

"I really think he is the right man to continue the era started by Jose Mourinho."
