Gigi Riva: AC Milan striker Balotelli can be Italy's greatest

Italy legend Gigi Riva believes AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli can become an Azzurri great.

Riva says Balotelli can be a ten-year player for the national team.

"He can overcome my 35 goals in Azzurro. He'll be our centre-forward for another ten years."

Riva also spoke of Italy coach Cesare Prandelli: "Big loss for the National Team if he leaves. He has done a great job.

"But Pep Guardiola left Barcelona that won everything."
