Simoni admits he's no fan of the former Manchester City forward.
"Balotelli is a player of great quality, that is beyond doubt," said Simoni.
"However, I consider him unreliable, which is why I would never want him in my squad. I prefer to have players who might be less talented, but are capable of giving me guarantees on their behaviour.
"I cannot stand the fact he is always ready to react, protest or provoke."
